Describing issues of health, safety and environment as critical determinants of business success in the oil and gas industry, Malam Mele Kyari, Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), has reiterated the Corporation’s commitment to supporting the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) Limited towards achieving its goal of becoming a global LNG company of choice.

Malam Kyari, who disclosed this while speaking as a Guest of Honour at the 2021 NLNG Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Day, said HSE was a critical determinant of business performance success across the oil and gas industry.

The NNPC GMD was represented at the forum by Nike Kolawole, Group General Manager, LNG Investment Management Services (LIMS) of the Corporation.

Dr. Kennie Obateru, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of NPPC, in a statement issued August 17, 2021, in Abuja, FCT, said Kyari noted the NNPC, as a principal shareholder in the company, would continue to ensure that NLNG places more emphasis on HSE.

“No matter the figures, indices or values recorded in production, sales, profit or revenue, a dismal HSE performance would lead to obliteration of long built achievement,” said the GMD.

Kyari also remarked that the rapid growth of NLNG from the base project (Trains 1 and 2) to six trains was unprecedented and commended the company for its ability to adapt and effectively manage changes within the period.

He stated: “Central to the world-class excellent record is the company’s unprecedented HSE culture, placing priority on safety performance ahead of other performance indices. Your consistent emphasis on human performance principles through Goal Zero deserves applauds.”

Earlier in his remarks, Mr. Tony Attah, outgoing Managing Director of NLNG, said that the focus of this year’s HSE Day was on identifying the weak and dark corners for continuous improvement on the organisation’s HSE policy.
