Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON) has honoured Forte Upstream Services Limited with ISO 9001:2015 certificate for quality management system.

Formerly known as AP Oilfield Services Ltd, Forte Upstream Service Limited is a wholly-owned Nigerian company with assets to support a wide range of services in the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry.

The company said in a statement that the SON certificate, which was issued as a result of the conformity of the company’s quality management system to the requirements of the standard ISO 9001:2015, was presented to the firm recently in Lagos.

The award was said to be in accordance with the company’s drive to improve its processes, procedures, and quality delivery of its services and product.

SON said that the systems of Forte Upstream were subjected to rigorous certification assessment by auditors, after which the system was adjudged to have conformed to the requirements of the international standards.

Receiving the award, the Managing Director of Forte Upstream, Mr. Doyin Ogun, said that the certification is a confirmation of the company’s effective quality management system which has been tested by SON.

Mr. Ogun explained that the audit process looked at the people, policies that we have and the system that the company uses to drive them, and put them to test.

According to the MD, “This essentially factors in what and how in terms of our policy implementation in order to reach quality levels for our stakeholders, current customers, internal stakeholders, and ultimately our potential customers.”

He explained that what the company believes is that, when clients see the ISO certification, it means the company system has gone through the right kind of tests. “It gives us impetus to work with people that we would ordinarily have not been able to work with. It also gives us a better selection chance, when we go out there to look for partners,” he said 

Mr. Ogun added that the certification would serve as a standard for the company because it has become imperative to keep to the level by ensuring an adequate feedback system with its clients and other stakeholders.
