As construction of Train-7 is being phased for safe mobilisation, the Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas Limited (NLNG), has chosen the University of Port Harcourt (UniPort) as a centre for training on LNG production technologies.
The organisation in a statement on Thursday disclosed this during a courtesy call by the Managing Director, NLNG, Engr. Tony Attah, on the Rivers State Governor, Nyensom Wike, where he announced that the Train-7 construction is being phased, to ensure a safe mobilization following the Covid-19 pandemic.
He explained that the UniPort has been selected as a centre of LNG excellence and for training on LNG production technologies.
Attah in his address based on the specific Nigerian Content regulations impacts of Train-7 hinted that the training on LNG production technologies at Uniport would be monitored by the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB).
According to Attah;
“we are currently developing modalities to progress work on Train 7 in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.
“Its construction is being phased to ensure a safe mobilisation to site.
“Human Capacity Development targets are being agreed with NCDMB to ensure Nigerians benefit from on-the-job training and personnel re-training events.
“University of Port Harcourt has been selected as a Centre of LNG Excellence where students will receive the required training on LNG production technologies as monitored by NCDMB”.
Meanwhile, the Department of Petroleum Resources on Thursday disclosed that the deadline to register to bid for Nigeria’s marginal oilfields has been extended by a week.
