According to EWT, a sister company to Nestoil, a leading EPCC Company; the 90mm Stainless Steel Clad Separator is part of the “Local Fabrication of Pressure Vessels “ project of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB), which is aimed at deepening local content in the Oil and Gas sector by improving the capacity of indigenous Oil and Gas companies.
While welcoming stakeholders to the epoch-making event which took place Thursday July 23 in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, Chairman EWT and Group Managing Director, Obijackson Group, Dr. Ernest Azudialu Obiejesi, who was represented by the General Manager, Projects, at Nestoil, Engr. Austin Agomuoh, expressed that the Obijackson Group was committed to the cause of deepening Local Content in the Energy sector.
He added, “This landmark achievement by Energy Works is a reflection of the Obijackson Group’s vision to maximise the potentials inherent in the Local Content Act signed into law in 2010.
“As a successful indigenous conglomerate with a range of capabilities across the Energy and Maritime sectors, we are convinced that the next step for us is to support smaller fabricators. This will have a multiplier effect on economic growth and reduce importation of vessels such as this.”
