    Congratulations and Well done Niger Delta Petroleum Resources Ltd for your achievement on stoppage of gas flaring. I call on other oil/gas companies to emulate this great achievement. God bless Nigeria

    good job. there needs to be more support for this kind of company. Yet DPR needs to do more to reduce flaring. flaring is waste of resources that nigeria needs. our power plants are starved of gas, yet 50% of gas is flared. there need to be an immediate end to it.
