(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – According to the boss of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB), Engr. Simbi Wabote, the Nigerian Oil and Gas Park at Emeyal 1 in Bayelsa, would be completed in the 4th quarter of 2022.
Wabote made this statement while inspecting the construction work at the project site, pointing out that his assessment tour would be followed up by a planned tour of the Board’s major projects by the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva, who during his tour will inspect the board’s oil and gas park projects at Emeyal 1 and Odukpani in Cross River State, as well as the Composite Gas Cylinder Manufacturing facility at Polaku.
Lauding the efforts of the contractors, Wabote added that the progress made by the contractors in a short period of time, compared favourably with similar jobs across Nigeria, noting that this impressive attitude to work by the Nigerian contractors is the major reason why the Board was always acting in accordance with its guidelines on the patronage of local service companies.
PROJECTED IMPACT: The park will create a low-cost manufacturing hub that will produce equipment components and spare parts to be utilized in the nation’s oil and gas industry.
