President Bola Tinubu has said his administration will continue to provide the needed interventions in the oil and gas industry in line with the provisions of the Petroleum Industry Act, PIA.
Speaking when he received a delegation led by Mr Clay Neff, President of Chevron International Exploration and Production, on Tuesday in Abuja, President Tinubu said Nigeria would strengthen its long-standing partnership with the multinational company in line with the evolving dynamics in the oil and gas industry.
The President welcomed Chevron’s commitment to build on its investments in shallow and deep water operations in Nigeria, noting the company’s ongoing $1.4 billion drilling project with the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, NNPCL.
He also commended Chevron for its dedication to reducing its carbon footprint in the country.
“You must see the PIA as a legacy law. We assure you of quick interventions and turnarounds on any issue you may have in your operations in our country.
Nigeria is proud of the 60-year partnership with Chevron, and we believe this partnership will be strengthened to add mutually beneficial value for the benefit of your shareholders as well as the living standards and economic opportunities of our population,” President Tinubu said.
