NNPC-NSChE Partnership To Make Nigeria Net Exporter Of Refined Products
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), has stated that its proposed partnership with the Nigerian Society of Chemical Engineers, NSChE, to build condensate refineries will make the country a net exporter of refined petroleum products.
This was disclosed by the Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Mallam Mele Kyari when he received the National Executive of the NSChE, led by its President, Engineer Onochie Anyaoku.
According to Kyari, the Corporation was willing to tap from the abundant expertise and experiences of the Society in order to ramp up the refining capacity of the country.
Noting that this will be done through collaboration with the Society to build a skilled workforce for the Corporation and the entire country through capacity building workshops and seminars, NNPC GMD said, “We will keep the flag flying and take the NNPC to the next level by delivering value to the Nigerian people. The NNPC Group is willing and ready to work with NSChE to ensure that the corporation remains a going concern. We look forward to every support that we can get from you,” Kyari stated.”
On his part, Engr. Anyaoku who expressed delight over the development, congratulated Kyari on his new appointment.
He added that the society will work with NNPC to tackle the challenges facing the nation’s oil and gas industry. “It is therefore appropriate, that we seek ways to support your group not just to heighten awareness of numerous NNPC’s achievements, but also to find a suitable framework to leverage your efforts,” Anyaoku said.
