And for this, I wish to extend the profound appreciation of Total to NPA, the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), NNPC, NCDMB, NAPIMS
and our partners, CNOOC, Sapetro, Petrobras.
During his initial stint with NAPIMS
which spanned from July 1993 to July 1999, Dr Baru executed several natural gas projects which utilised billions of cubic feet of gas per day.
The Abo field is operated by Agip with Shell and NAPIMS
Gabriel Kolawole (Ondo APC), who said NAPIMS
nominated four firms by itself.
He added, NAPIMS
had through three memoranda dated October 13, 2014, February 10, 2015 and April 16, 2015, nominated four companies to execute the contracts, in violation of due process and without approval from both the Board of the NNPC and its Group Executive Committee.
NNPC has created NPDC unit, the Committee on Transfer of Operatorship and Capacity Building, to oversee these operating activities, while another sub-committee has been set up by NNPC's regulator NAPIMS to follow the legal aspects of the transfer.
PPMC), who in late 2003 replaced Austin Oniwon - previously Achimugu was executive director at Port Harcourt refinery; and Philip Chukwu deputy general manager of NNPC NAPIMS.
The National Petroleum Investment Management Services, NAPIMS, has received support from the Niger Delta Indigenous Movement for Radical Change, NDIMRC, on the approval of $260 million contracts for ExxonMobils Usan Field.
Certain aspects were just out to tarnish the good image of NAPIMS.
While NNPC is in charge of the state assets, its NAPIMS
is more involved in the day-to-day business and the DPR regulates.
It maintained that SCiN inked domestication deals with six Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and their indigenous partners, with approval from the Federal Government and NAPIMS
, to set up assembly/ production plants in Nigeria.
And this is why I heaved a sigh of relief when I was redeployed to Benin in 1990 and later to Lagos to work at NAPIMS
where I worked until my retirement in 2004.
