Ogbonnaya A. Kalu

Dear Esteemed Readers, It’s with great pleasure and joy that I welcome you to the third quarter of our refreshing NAPIMS NEWS.

Again, I must thank you, our most cherished readers and contributors, for your sustained devotion and support. I must also thank the great number that called, sent SMS and mails to congratulate me on my maiden outing as the new Editor. Please accept my profound gratitude.

Within the last few months a lot has happened both in NNPC and the Nation at large. As you are aware, there was a change of Baton in the NNPC leadership recently. The new GMD, Dr. Joseph Thlama Dawha has vouched for sustainability of the on-going transformation of NNPC facilities.

As the Nation grapples with Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), the HMPR, Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke urges the Oil & Gas industry to seek ways to compliment government’s effort on the fight against the Ebola outbreak.

We also present to you the story on the landmark mathematical formula for sharing crude oil theft loss incidence among affected companies as propounded by the egg-heads of NAPIMS/DPR Five-Man committee.

Oil & Gas analyst, Mr. Ogunjemiyo Mascot takes an incisive look at the interplay of variables affecting crude oil price at the international market.

We have also community development story, The Teens corner: Boosting Your Child’s Self-Esteem and the Health discourse.

Its juicy, its rich, relax and enjoy a quality NAPIMS NEWS.



With respect to your recent “World Environment Day” as reported in the last edition of your NAPIMS NEWS, where your GMD called for collective action on Global Climate Change. Please, may I know what NNPC is doing to cushion the effect of the pollution caused by spillages and unnecessary gas flaring by IOCs in the country? George T. Priye (Yenagoa, Bayelsa State)

I read the article on Oil & Gas mega project by Engr. Seyi Omotowa. I think there is need for the Oil & Gas industry to review and reinvigorate their efforts on mega projects so as to improve their performance measurements. Mudashiru Kelani, (FUTA, Akure)

The federal government and the oil majors should evolve a feasible proactive measure to shore up the anticipated supply disruption occasioned by the crisis in Iraq and Ukraine. For me, this is another oil windfall in the making. Shale gas or no shale gas we must keep in mind that Indians’ and Chinese energy demand are on the rise. We must be ready for these markets. Mr. Fred Onwubiko (Public Affairs Analyst, Lagos)
