Ugandan Oil Officials Seek Collaboration with Nigeria

Ugandan Oil Officials Seek Collaboration with Nigeria 

In an effort to work with Nigeria in various facets of the oil business, a delegation of representatives from the Ugandan National Oil Company (UNOC) visited oil installations in the Niger Delta region yesterday.

They stated that they were especially interested in finding out best practices for capacity building and human resources in the oil industry, as well as how Nigeria managed its oil sector for many years while staying afloat.

Before departing for Bayelsa State to continue their assignment, the Ugandan team, which consisted of four senior UNOC officials and was accompanied by representatives of the Nigeria Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB), visited important oil facilities in Delta State, including the Petroleum Training Institute (PTI), Effurun.

Tassalla Tersugh, the General Manager of NCDMB’s Midstream Division, reports that the Uganda National Oil Company sent a letter inviting them to Nigeria so they could work together and share ideas in the oil and gas industry, which Nigeria is an expert in.

According to Tersugh, the board recognised PTI as a key player in the development of oil and gas labour and invited Ugandan officials to tour the facility.

Dr. Tina Isichei, PTI’s Director of Research and Development, gave a presentation to the delegation about important aspects of the oil and gas industry, arguing that Nigeria and other African countries need to create their own distinct methods for exploring oil and gas, distinct from those used by the West.
