NLNG Global Expansion Plan Still Intact—Kyari
By Adedapo Adesanya
The Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mr Mele Kyari, has said plans to make the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) Limited a global organisation was still intact.
Mr Kyari reaffirmed this when he spoke at the 2021 NLNG Health Safety and Environment (HSE) Day.
The NNPC helmsman, who was represented by the Group General Manager, LNG Investment Management Services (LIMS), Mrs Nike Kolawole, said HSE was a critical determinant of business performance success across the oil and gas industry.
Mr Kyari stated that as a principal shareholder in the company, NNPC would continue to ensure that NLNG places more emphasis on HSE, stressing that “no matter the figures, indices or values recorded in production, sales, profit or revenue, a dismal HSE performance would lead to the obliteration of long built achievement.”
He remarked that the rapid growth of NLNG from the base project (Trains 1 and 2) to six trains was unprecedented and commended the company for its ability to adapt and effectively manage changes within the period.
“Central to the world-class excellent record is the company’s unprecedented HSE culture, placing priority on safety performance ahead of other performance indices.
“Your consistent emphasis on human performance principles through Goal Zero deserves applauds,” he said.
On his part, the outgoing Managing Director of NLNG, Mr Tony Attah, said the focus of this year’s HSE Day was on identifying the weak and dark corners for continuous improvement on the organisation’s HSE policy.
