One of the Nigerian Government’s aspiration for the oil and gas is to bring reform, which will require structural and legislative changes, to and relevance of sustainable community development projects in the oil producing communities such as this cannot be under estimated.
The NNPC, as a responsible Corporate citizen engages in sustainable community development in joint venture partnership with the International Oil Companies (IOC’s) in the oil producing Communities in the Niger Delta. The objective of this engagement is to impact positively on the lives of the people and the environment in which we operate. In the seven (7) oil producing communities under review the two International Oil Companies (IOCs) operating in those areas are: Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) and Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC). SPDC operates in Gbaran- Ubie, Obigbo North, Utorogu, Afam / Okoloma and Oben communities (The oilfield was relinquished to Seplat Petroleum Development Company in August 2010), while NAOC operates in Obiafu – Obrikom and Kwale communities respectively.
NAPIMS Public Affairs Department (PAD) delegation, led by the Manager, Mr. Kenny Obateru, visited and ascertained the level of community development and status of community projects in seven (7) oil producing communities in the Niger Delta that have been impacted by the JV Gas Operation.
