    DSS pledges to support protection of NNPC assets

    Assets

    Abuja, Sept. 5, 2019 Alhaji Yusuf Bichi, the Director-General, Department of State Services (DSS), on Thursday pledged to support the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to protect the corporation’s critical assets.

    Dr Peter Afunanya, the Public Relations Officer of the DSS in a statement in Abuja said Bichi disclosed this during a courtesy visit by the management team of the NNPC.

    He said the visit was in line with the renewed interagency relations often identified as an effective paradigm for modern security management.

    Bichi said the protection of the nation’s economy was to enable government to continue to perform its fundamental role of providing security and welfare for its citizens as enshrined in the Constitution.

    The DSS boss urged the team to take advantage of the visit to consolidate on the existing collaboration between the two agencies.

    In his remark, the leader of the team and the Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Alhaji Mele Kyari said the visit was to deepen the existing interagency relations between the two organisations.

    He said the corporation had in recent times, faced some challenges of national security significance.

    Kyari said loss of revenue from product stealing, deliberate damage to product pipelines, cross border smuggling of petroleum products and long indebtedness to the corporation were the challenges confronting it.

    He decried the impact of the challenges on revenue generation of the country, adding that the dwindling revenues had negative effects on government’s ability to realise its objectives.

    He therefore solicited for the assistance of the DSS in containing the threats and the recovery of debts owed the corporation in line with its mandate to protect the nation against economic sabotage.

    Don’t drag NNPC to politics under FOI guise, Kyari warns

    The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has urged the public to be wary of attempts to drag the corporation into politics in the guise of requests for information under the Freedom of Information law.

    The Group Managing Director of the Corporation disclosed this in a statement signed by Mr Ndu Ughamadu, the spokesman for the corporation, in Abuja on Tuesday.

    Kyari made the call during a courtesy visit by the Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, (NEITI), Mr Waziri Adio, to the NNPC Towers.

    He said that though the corporation was committed to transparency and accountability to the Nigerian people, a line must be drawn between genuine requests for information and malicious attempts to drag it into politics.

    “As you are aware, sometimes the requests are brazenly malicious, and they are laden with political undertones.

    “NNPC finds it difficult to respond to such requests because it is mindful of falling into the trap of being drawn into politics or maligning others,” he said.

    He added that in keeping with its commitment to be accountable and transparent, the corporation would publish its audited accounts soon.

    On the disclosure of contracts and contractors as requested by the NEITI boss, he said the biggest contracts in the corporation’s portfolio currently was the products supply contracts under the Direct Sales Direct Purchase (DSDP) scheme.

    He noted that details of the contracts and the contractors would also be made public within this month.

    He promised to make the monthly financial and operations reports more accessible by publishing the soft copies of the reports from January to May.

    In his remarks, Adio, congratulated Kyari on his appointment, saying: “This is a big opportunity you have been given to shape the direction of this country in a positive way and I believe you have the capacity to do that”.

    He said he was particularly impressed with the corporation’s robust deployment of modern information and communication platforms, especially the website, which he noted could be used as a transparency tool through pro-active disclosures.

    He said NEITI would remain committed to working with the NNPC because of the GMD’s track record of integrity.

    “The GMD is somebody we can vouch for, he is a transparency champion and I can’t remember any GMD’s appointment that has elicited as much goodwill as your appointment has generated,” he said.

    Refinery: NNPC not in competition with Dangote – Kyari

    The Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Malam Mele Kyari says the corporation is not in contest for market share with the forthcoming Dangote Refinery.

    Kyari disclosed this in a statement signed by Mr Ndu Ughamadu the spokesman for the corporation, in Abuja, on Wednesday.

    He said that NNPC focus was on providing support to the promoters of the project to boost the country’s refining capacity.

    Kyari was quoted to have said this while receiving the President of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, at the towers.

    He explained that as the chief enabler of the Nigerian economy, the NNPC had a duty to rally industry players like Dangote Group to achieve the long held target of making Nigeria a net exporter of petroleum products.

    He assured that the same level of support would be provided to other promoters of refineries, noting that the ultimate goal was to enhance the country’s production to the point of self-sufficiency and ultimately for export.

    Earlier, Dangote emphasised that the business approach of the Dangote Refinery was to see NNPC as a collaborator rather than a competitor.

    He noted that the refinery would rely heavily on the Corporation’s invaluable knowledge of the refining business in Nigeria to achieve its central objective.

    Dangote aligned his company  with the Federal Government’s aspiration to ensure adequate provision through the country’s refining capacity.

    He added that upon completion, the refinery would dedicate 53 per cent of its projected 650,000 barrels per day refining capacity to the production of petrol.

    “The most important thing for us is to see how we can partner with NNPC, it is not to see how we can compete with NNPC.

    “We would like NNPC to be part of us and we also want to be part of NNPC. I think that is the only way we can achieve a win-win situation,” he said.

    NNPC records N6.33b trade surplus in May -Report

    The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said it recorded a trade surplus of N6.33 billon for the month of May, 13 per cent higher than the N5.60 billion surplus made  in April .

    The corporation disclosed this in its Monthly and Operations report (MFOR) released on Sunday in Abuja

    It attributed the rise to the increase in gas and power output and surplus recorded by the corporation’s downstream entities like NNPC Retail, Petroleum Products Marketing Company(PPMC) , Nigerian Pipelines Security Company(NPSC) and Duke Oil.

    The report further indicated that within the period, the NNPC recorded a total of 580.32 million dollars in export sale of crude oil and gas which is 23.39 per cent higher than the previous month’s figure.

    ” Out of this number, crude oil export sales contributed 458.59 million dollars which translates to 79.02 per cent of the entire dollar transactions compared with 342.11 million dollars contributed in the month of May,” it said

    It also showed that between May 2018 and May 2019, crude oil and gas worth 5.97 billion dollars was exported.

    It noted that beyond supply, the corporation continued to monitor the daily stock of petrol to achieve smooth distribution of petroleum products and zero fuel queue across the nation.

    “Within the period, a total of 60 pipeline points were vandalized which represents 52 per cent decrease from the 125 points vandalized in April.

    The report attributed the improvement to the spirited efforts by NNPC in collaboration with the local communities and other stakeholders to continuously strive to reduce and eventually eliminate this menace.

    The May 2019 NNPC MFOR is the 46th in the series, designed to provide greater transparency and remove the perception of opacity associated with the operations of the national oil company.

    Shi’ites, police clash: NDYC shelves protest against NNPC

    Niger Delta Youth Council (NDYC) has suspended its planned protest against the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) for failure to consider  its youth in its recent recruitment.

    The group announced the suspension in a statement jointly signed by its National Coordinators, Mr Jator Abido and Mr Kede Michael.

    It said the suspension was necessary following the persistent clashes between the members of Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) and security agencies.

    The IMN has consistently organised protests in the nation’s capital and other states in the North resulting in many deaths including a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) and a National Youth Service Corps member with Channels Television.

    “We had planned a grand protest to shut down activities of NNPC and all its subsidiaries in reaction to marginalisation of people of the region in the last recruitment exercise carried out by the nation’s oil company.

    “The Niger Delta Youth Council has held series of meetings with representatives of NNPC over the issue; we made demands and they agreed that our demands were genuine and promised that the management would look into them.

    “However, we have not seen signs that moves are being made to address our concerns.

    “As law abiding citizens, who are genuinely concerned about the peace and development of the nation, we resolved at our congress to shelve the protest in the interest of peace.

    “We will continue to engage the management of the corporation,” the group stated.

    PENGASSAN hails Kyari’s appointment, seeks end to fuel subsidy, obsolete refineries challenges

    The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN), has urged the new Group Managing Director of NNPC, Mr Mele Kyari to as a matter of urgency address fuel subsidy challenge.

    The association in a congratulatory message signed by its General Secretary, Mr Lumumba Okugbawa, also urged Kyari to address the challenge of obsolete refinaries.

    He described Kyari’s appointment as well-deserved and recognition of his 27 years exemplary service in the NNPC group.

    According to him, the nation’s growing economy, which is majorly dependent on the oil and gas industry, needs a vibrant leader that will address the issues.

    Okugbawa expressed optimism that Kyari as a typical crude oil marketer with prerequisite certification and outfield pedigree in petroleum economics and crude oil and gas trading, would reposition the sector.

    “GMD Sir, we agree that the nation’s oil and gas industry is on a steady progression to the next level.

    “However, the challenges associated with pipeline vandalism, crude oil theft, inadequate infrastructure, pricing uncertainties, and the obsolete refineries must be addressed.

    “The contentious fuel subsidy issues and resting of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) are issues the Nigerian masses expect the new NNPC Board to champion,’’ the general secretary said.

    Okugbawa said that having followed Kyari’s career progression, he was optimistic that his appointment would further help in the development of the oil and gas industry and the nation’s economy.

    He commended the outgoing GMD, Dr Maikanti Baru for his contributions to the growth of the industry.

    Okugbawa said that history would remember him for his good works in bringing stability in industrial relations management and free flow of refined products.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that PENGASSAN had highlighted need for the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill before the end of the present administration, noting that the bill had suffered delays over the years.

    “This bill, which started as the Oil and Gas Sector Reform Implementation Committee Report, and has been on for 19 years since April 2000, has gone through various stages with the Petroleum Industry Governance Bill at the forefront now.
