Pioneer managing director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Chief Festus Marinho, has commended the management of the corporation, led by the Group Managing Director, Dr. Maikanti Baru, for emplacing NNPC on the path of prosperity.
He expressed happiness seeing his dreams for the corporation come into fruition.
Marinho disclosed this during his visit to the corporation recently. A statement issued by the spokesperson of NNPC, Ndu Ughamadu, quoted him as saying: “Following developments from outside, one cannot but be proud that to a large extent, one’s dream for the NNPC is unfolding. You are making tremendous progress.”
He noted that despite the numerous problems and interferences faced by the corporation, the Dr. Baru-led management has kept its head straight, refusing to be cowed despite the difficult operating environment.
Marinho, was said to have expressed awe at the pace with which technology was impacting the Oil and Gas Industry, said 2D seismic data acquisition started during his stewardship over 40 years ago, adding that when the 3D seismic acquisition came up, everyone was overjoyed.
“I don’t know how much ‘D’ seismic acquisition you are doing today, but I know a lot of progress has been made. Although technology is now more complicated, I think the beauty of it is that we are getting as much out of NNPC as one would have thought possible,” Marinho added.
Responding, Dr. Baru thanked Chief Marinho for his visit and sharing his thoughts on how best to improve the corporation’s operations.
