NLNG seeks robust partnership with Rivers
The partnership, was in view of the relocation of its headquarters to Port Harcourt.
Speaking at the ground breaking ceremony of the new NLNG’s Head Office, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of NLNG, Babs Omotowa, said without Rivers State government’s support, it would be difficult for the company to accomplish laudable achievements it has come to be known for.
He said: “Any negative impact to our people and assets would hamper our ability to deliver on our obligations to our buyers and adversely affect the value we bring to government revenue.
“Our relationship with Rivers State represents a unique partnership between government and a corporate giant, coming together for a shared purpose: to impact in the most positive way possible a better Rivers State and Nigeria.
“Today, by this ground-breaking to erect our new head office, we make an unequivocal statement, that Nigeria LNG Limited is a partner with the people of Rivers State in the sustainable development of the state and its people. Our resolve in 2010 to relocate NLNG’s head office to Port-Harcourt right next to its support base was and still is a business decision. It made good business sense to be in close proximity to our world-class plant located across the river in Bonny. It also made sense to be closer to the people and over hundred and ten (110) pipeline communities whose activities have a direct impact on our company’s ability to deliver liquefied natural gas (LNG) and natural gas liquids (NGLs) to many locations around the world,” he added.
Omotowa assured the Rivers State government of continued support through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes.
