NNPC is working with foreign oil and gas companies to tackle Nigeria’s problem with sabotage of oil and gas infrastructure. The General Manager, Group Security Department of the NNPC, Sam Otoboeze, said in Abuja that the arrangement would complement federal government’s security operations in oil producing communities.
He said the synergy between the security of the international oil companies and other agencies would provide a conducive environment for oil and gas production, which would allow for the government to make enough money to fund its annual budget.
The NNPC security chief said the corporation had already rolled out a community security engagement mechanism that would allow members of the oil bearing communities be engaged to secure facilities in their domains.
“The strategy is paying off, particularly with the drastic drop in oil and gas facility breaches in recent times,” he said. source: NNPC
