16 December 2018, Sweetcrude, Port Harcourt — The Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board, NCDMB, and the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Company, NLNG, have held a knowledge sharing capacity building workshop in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The workshop is an initiative of the Projects Certification and Authorization Division, PCAD, of NCDMB and was conceived to foster knowledge in different areas in the oil and gas industry.
The workshop is also to enhance performance and deepen the relationship between PCAD and different operators/project promoters so that both parties can understand the technicalities of their partners and Nigerian Content opportunities.
According to Engr. Paul Zuhumben, General Manager PCAD, this year’s program enabled staff of the division to understand NLNG’s business value chains, processes, and vendor management systems.
Zuhumben said the workshop also provided an opportunity for NCDMB to make relevant NLNG personnel understand the different Nigerian Content opportunities derivable from their projects.
He added that the knowledge sharing and capacity building workshop was started last year in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State and the participants included Chevron and SNEPCo.
“The intent is to improve value addition in the Nigerian Oil and Gas industry, which in turns improves the other sectors of the economy as envisaged in the Board’s 10 years strategic roadmap, he added.
“The two days program was attended by all PCAD personnel as well as other NCDMB personnel from the Human Resources Division, Nigerian Content Development Fund unit and Logistics.
“The invitation extended to staff of other divisions was to enable them understand the activities of PCAD and some of their requirements to achieve optimum delivery.”
