NNPC, Navy Collaborate To Reactivate Mega Floating Stations In Niger Delta

The downstream subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC Retail, has revved up plans with the Nigerian Navy to ensure effective service delivery and security of its mega floating stations across the Niger Delta region of the country.
The corporation said the management of NNPC Retail led by its new managing director, Sir Billy Okoye, is engaging the Navy to provide adequate security for its badges and other facilities routinely deployed for effective operations of the FMS.
The boss of the NNPC retail outfit and his management team paid a courtesy call on the Nigerian Navy Chief of Training and Operations (CITOPS), Rear Admiral Tariworio Dick, where far- reaching measures were emplaced after fruitful deliberations.
The NNPC explained that smooth operation of the 12 floating mega stations would help to guarantee petroleum products penetration in the far recesses of littoral communities in the Niger Delta region in line with the aspiration of the NNPC management to ensure operational efficiency across all tiers of the industry value chain.
The FMS concept was actualised with the phased deployment of the stations beginning from 2007 through 2009 with the ultimate goal of eliminating the perennial challenge by residents of coastal zones in accessing petroleum products.
Meanwhile, Mr. Mele Kyari, the group managing director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), has assured host communities of oil and gas installations of sustained and symbiotic engagement with the national oil company in such a way as to entrench mutually beneficial partnership with the industry.
The NNPC GMD made the pledge in response to a message of goodwill on his appointment by the Host Communities of Oil Installations in the Niger Delta, during a recent visit to the NNPC Towers, Abuja, led by its leader, Comrade Atuake Solomon and organising secretary, Dr. Peter Ikeagwu.
He said the NNPC would expand the prevailing cordial relationship with its various host communities to achieve set goals and targets in this regard.
Kyari implored the host communities of oil and gas infrastructure across the country to see themselves in that light while treating their guests and operators of such facilities as partners whose only interest is to bring development and prosperity to their domain.
