The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mallam Mele Kyari, has vowed to support the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) Limited in achieving its goal of becoming a global LNG company of choice.
Speaking as today, August 17, at the 2021 NLNG Health Safety and Environment Day, the Mallam Mele Kyari said that the Health Safety and Environment is a critical determinant of business performance success across the oil and gas industry.
Represented by the Group General Manager, LNG Investment Management Services (LIMS), Nike Kolawole, the NNPC Boss said that as a principal shareholder in the company, NNPC would continue to ensure that NLNG places more emphasis on Health Safety and Environment.
“No matter the figures, indices or values recorded in production, sales, profit or revenue, a dismal Health Safety and Environment performance would lead to obliteration of long built achievement.”
According to him, the rapid growth of NLNG from the base project (Trains 1 and 2) to six trains was unprecedented, even as he 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.”
Earlier, the outgoing Managing Director of NLNG, Tony Attah, said that the focus of this year’s Health Safety Environment Day is on identifying the weak and dark corners for continuous improvement on the organization’s HSE policy.
