Local Content Law: Delta communities urge Chevron to prevail on contractors

15 May 2015, Lagos – Members of the Gbaramatu/Egbema Host Communities Welders and Fitters (Escravos) have implored Chevron Nigeria Limited, CNL, to prevail on its contractors to comply with the Nigerian Local Content Law by engaging more local unemployed professionals to avoid crippling its Escravos tank farm, flow stations and offshore fields.

In a letter by its Chairman, Mr. Timiyan George, to the Warri Area Manager of CNL, the group decried the low patronage of qualified welders and fitters by CNL serving companies of Oil Industrial Services, OIS, Idmon Engineering and Construction, Midis Energy Services and Dormanlong Engineering Limited, among others.

They warned that unless something urgent was done, angry unemployed professional welders and fitters in Escravos Tank Farm, Abiteye, Makarada, Alero, Dibi, Utonana, Opuekeba and the offshore fields, would react negatively by crippling Chevron operations in the days ahead.
