NNPC to Promote In-Country Technology
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has pledged to promote the development and commercialization of home-grown technology in collaboration with the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB).
Delivering the Lead paper at the 47th Conference and Annual General Meeting of Nigerian Society of Chemical Engineers in Port Harcourt on Friday, Group Managing Director of the Corporation, Dr. Maikanti Baru, said the effort would be driven by the Research and Development (R&D) arm of the Corporation.
Throwing more light on the plan, Dr. Baru said the collaborative effort with the NCDMB was already manifesting with the joint establishment of research clusters that will specialize in different areas of the oil and gas activities.
The GMD declared that Nigeria was in dire need of urgently clawing back, from foreign yards, most fabrication works and other services in the industry to boost the contribution of the industry to the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
