The Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Company (NLNG) says without the professional way the Nigerian Navy (NN) has played its roles, it would have found it extremely difficult to operate in the Niger Delta region.
Managing Director (MD) of NLNG, Mr Tony Attah, who spoke when he led a delegation of the Company on a courtesy visit to Chief of the Naval Staff (CNS), Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo, at the Naval Headquarters Abuja, thanked the Nigerian Navy for ensuring a peaceful atmosphere for it to carry out its activities.
Mr Attah explained that Liquefied Natural Gas is a critical national asset to the future of the country especially at a time that the nation is moving away from dependence on crude oil.
He therefore solicited for the continued support of the NN to enable the Company sustain its operations.
Responding, the CNS, Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo appreciated the show of goodwill by the MD and quickly recalled that the NLNG was instrumental in the establishment of the NN Forward Operating Base Bonny.
Vice Admiral Gambo pointed out that the NN is very mindful of the position of the NLNG as a key national asset and the NN’s responsibility to ensure that this asset is well protected.
Thus, he assured the MD and his team that the Service will continue to support the NLNG especially by providing a favourable atmosphere for its operations so that business will thrive without any fear.
Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo also noted with delight how the issue of gas flaring is becoming a thing of the past.
