NCDMB Trains 30 Graduates On Marine Survey

Thirty graduates have commenced post graduate diploma programme on marine survey under the sponsorship of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB). The kick-off ceremony was held recently at the Niger Delta University, Wilberforce, Amassoma, Bayelsa State and the programme will equip participants with techniques to measure the quantity and quality of products such as crude oil, premium motor spirit (PMS), automotive gas oil (AGO) etc. On graduation, the participants would also be able to perform proper measurement and documentation of the nation’s income from oil and gas production. 20 graduates are enrolled in Marine Survey Level (12months) while 10 graduates will be trained as Marine Survey Upgrade (6months). The classroom component of the training will hold concurrently at the Niger Delta University Entrepreneurship Centre in Bayelsa State and Federal College of Fisheries and Marine Technology in Lagos state for 12 months and six months respectively. On-the-job training for the participants will take place at the Centre for Marine Survey Nigeria (CMSN), Lagos and, with international certification from the International Naval Surveys Bureau and Phoenix Register Shipping. Delivering his opening remarks at the event, the Executive Secretary, NCDMB, Engr. Simbi Wabote, ably represented by the General Manager, Capacity Building Division, Dr. Ama Ikuru, hinted that Nigerian ownership of marine vessels and equipment in the oil and gas industry is currently estimated about 40 percent. He added that increasing vessel ownership and participation of Nigerians in the maritime category will go a long way in meeting the 70 percent Nigerian Content aspiration by 2027. He maintained that marine surveyors are key to sustaining marine activities in the oil and gas industry and supporting vessel owners to survey and recertify their vessels in-country. He commended the Centre for Marine Surveyors Nigeria (CMSN) in conjunction with Wider Perspectives Limited and the Niger Delta University for developing a world class post graduate diploma training programme on Marine Survey.

NSE To Host Key Oil And Gas Conference on Webinar

With the attractions being generatedaround renewable energy, which includes, Wind and Solar, it appears uncertain how the Nigerian gas industry would sustain its trending claim: "Gas is our own cleaner fuel" in the long run, knowing that most funding are coming from investors who are also pushing wind and solar investment. When askedduring a virtual webinar organized by the Nigerian Stock Exchange, NSE, if it would be necessary forthe government to put a regulation in place for all vehicles, generators, power to use mostly gas and less of solar and wind and other renewable energy to protect domestic gas market, the president of Nigerian Gas Association, NGA, Mrs. Audrey Joe-Ezigbo, said,“We do engage quite extensively with the investment world through our Investment Promotions program. We are very active on international platforms where we are constantly speaking to the issues. We also have a large corporate membership base that understands the issues and use their own platforms to push the same message. “If you have also listened to our government reps - the Hon. Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, the GMD, the COO, G&P of NNPC, Director DPR and others, you will note that they also understand this and use their platforms at that level to speak to the issue as well. “In terms of the playing field, in my view there is no need to try to constrain the development of solar, wind or other renewable technologies. They have their place in the energy matrix of any country. “I repeat though that scale will be a challenge for a long time, and you only need to dimension their proportion of the energy mixes of more developed nations to get a sense of what I mean in this regard. “It is important they have a level playing field to develop, butthey are not our short and near term solutions to the quantum of challenges we face in Nigeria. Besides, we are still seeing more advanced nations including China, the United States, a good part of Asia and Europe who future energy programmes clearly still incorporate the use of Gas. “Africa, and Nigeria, will be no different in this regard.”

Refining investment will increase with downstream sector deregulation– Kyari

The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mallam Mele Kyari, has said that the deregulation of the downstream sector of the oil and gas industry in Nigeria will increase investment in the refining business and facilitate exponential growth in the nation’s refining capacity. Kyari made this submission at the opening ceremony of the African Refiners Association (ARA) Week 2020 which held virtually with the theme: “Towards Cleaner Fuels for Cleaner Air.” A press release by the Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of NNPC, Dr. Kennie Obateru, stated that the GMD delivered a keynote address entitled, “Vision for the Downstream Sector on the Continent,” at the event in which he advocated deeper collaboration among downstream players across the African continent to provide solutions to challenges of substandard fuels. Mallam Kyari said though the idea of price stabilization which led to the introduction of fuel subsidy in the 1970s was noble, it had grown into a huge financial burden on the nation’s treasury over the years, necessitating its removal in March 2020. He stressed that the move will not only free up much-needed cash to fund infrastructural development, but will also eliminate market distortion, foster competition between operators, get more private sector players to build refineries in the country and promote efficiency across the entire value chain. He said increasing Africa’s refining capacity as well as quality of fuel required respective refineries to implement sustainable, coordinated pan-African solutions that would meet the target fuel specifications and thus protect the health and wellbeing of African nations and their citizenry. “It is important to note at this point that the future of our continent does not just lie in our ability to unlock value from our vast natural resources or powering an industrial and economic revolution, but also in our ability to implement proven refining solutions that consider the broader public health implications of our business decisions,” the GMD stated. He said NNPC was making concerted efforts to carry out holistic rehabilitation of its refineries in Port Harcourt, Warri and Kaduna, noting that it was also collaborating with relevant stakeholders to establish modular and condensate refineries as well as supporting private sector establishment of refineries. “These projects will be in line with the AFRI standards of AFRI-4 specifications of 50 particles per million for diesel and 150 particles per million for gasoline by 2020, and AFRI-5 specification of 50 particles per million of sulphur in gasoline and diesel by 2030 respectively. Considering that revamp of petroleum products storage depots and associated pipelines is key to optimal operations of the refineries, the Corporation has decided to use a Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) strategy to restore these facilities using private sector financing,” Mallam Kyari informed. According to him, this process has progressed significantly as the process of partner selection was ongoing to ensure sustainability of the refineries post rehabilitation. He noted that Nigeria was intensifying the use of natural gas to ensure lower emissions, adding that natural gas has been identified as the fuel of choice for the future as it has the full credentials to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The NNPC helmsman also disclosed that the outlook for the downstream sector both in Nigeria and across the African continent looks bright with attractive market conditions, large market, significant crude distillation capacity additions from various refinery projects, improvement of the distribution network and the use of natural gas. He called on the refining professionals across the continent to utilize the abundant opportunities for strategic collaboration across the entire downstream value chain towards delivering value for the continent. On his part, the Executive Secretary of ARA, Engr. Anibor Kragha, applauded the NNPC for its efforts to bolster the continents’ refining capacity, assuring that the Association along with other stakeholders would support the Corporation to achieve its noble objectives.
