Nigeria: NNPC Gets Workers' Nod On Oil Search in Inland Basins

The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has commended the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) on the exploratory activities it has been spearheading in inland basins.

The National President of PENGASSAN, Comrade Francis Johnson, stated this on Tuesday in Abuja when he led the Central Working Committee (CWC) of the union on a visit to the NNPC Group Managing Director, Dr. Maikanti Baru.

Johnson said the yeoman job being undertaken by the NNPC with regards to the frontier basins would benefit the nation ultimately.

He said the union's fervent prayer was for a breakthrough to be achieved in the corporation's exploratory efforts in the basins.

The NNPC under Dr. Baru had in recent times embarked on aggressive exploratory operations in the nation's frontier basins of the Chad and Benue.

Responding, Dr. Baru disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari had mandated him and the NNPC management to bring back the refineries to their glorious days, and he thanked the unions for their belief in his capability to deliver on the president's mandate.

He said funding had been a major challenge in the rehabilitation of the refineries, but that he was optimistic that the various options being explored would yield positive results.
