Nigerian to Grow Content to 70% by 2027

“Driving Economic Development and Sustainability” is very relevant to NNPC, the Industry and the country at large given the considerable gains recorded in the nation’s Oil and Gas landscape. The GMD said that as early as 2005, despite almost 50 years of a vibrant national oil industry experience, NNPC was concerned at the low level of Nigerian Content in the country and thus called for a fresh approach to domesticating Oil and Gas Industry spend through the establishment of the Nigeria Content Division (NCD) with the aim of identifying and guiding the implementation of key national content initiatives, including promoting local manufacturing of steel plates & pipes and developing engineering design expertise in the country. He maintained that by 2010, when the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development (NOGICD) Act was enacted, a National Content Coordination Framework, which incorporates the key stakeholders in achieving increased linkage of the petroleum sectors with other sectors of the economy, was established under NNPC’s Nigeria Content Division, stressing that the Division then metamorphosed into today’s NCDMB. The NNPC GMD listed the achievements recorded in the development of Local Content to include ramping up pipe mills from 100,000MT/annum to 420,000MT/annum, representing 40 per cent of industry demand and the sustainable engagement of indigenous service companies and contractors to carry out NPDC’s operations and maintenance activities. He disclosed that the NNPC was actively collaborating with NCDMB to drive indigenous participation through the engagement of community resources, human resources and capital in the execution of Joint Venture projects and maintenance activities. He further stated that in a bid to stimulate the participation of indigenous companies in the Oil and Gas Industry, NNPC has continuously worked with NCDMB to align the Nigerian Petroleum Exchange (NipeX) portal and the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Joint Qualification System (NOGICJQS) portal with a view to adequately capture the capacity of local companies to enable them take advantage of the available opportunities. He revealed that as at today, local companies are now active participants in the bidding process for the crude oil term contracts and the Direct Sale of Crude Oil and Direct Purchase of Petroleum Products (DSDP) contracts.
