Community Development

The NNPC, as a responsible Corporate citizen engages in sustainable community development in joint venture partnership with the International Oil Companies (IOC’s) in the oil producing Communities in the Niger Delta. The objective of this engagement is to impact positively on the lives of the people and the environment in which we operate.

Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) operates in Utorogu community; hence, NAPIMS Public Affairs Department (PAD) delegation, led by the Manager, Mr. Kenny Obateru, visited and ascertained the level of community development and status of community projects in Utorogu oil producing communities in the Niger Delta that have been impacted by the JV Gas Operation.

The Utorogu Gas Plant, as one of the NNPC/SPDC JV Gas Facilities, is located in Warri, Delta State. Its major project is the West African Gas Project (WAGP). The WAGP is the upgrading of the Gas Plant facilities from its former production of 270mcf/pd to 360mcf/pd, to meet up with the contractual demand of exporting Gas to other West African countries. Presently, its major customer is Ajaokuta Steel Complex which gets supplies through the Nigerian Gas Company (NGC), Ekpan, Warri.

The Three (3) primary host Communities of Utorogo Clan are the Iwerekan, Otu-Jeremi and Otor-Udu Communities. Since the establishment of the Utorogu Gas plant in 1999 to date, a total number 38 Community development projects have been executed in these communities.
