On January 21, President Muhammadu Buhari will practically inaugurate the National Oil and Gas Excellence Centre (NOGEC) in Lagos, in an attempt to improve the nation’s petroleum sector operations.

The Director of DPR, Mr Sarki Auwalu, the chief host of the forum, quoted Mr Paul Osu, Head of Public Affairs of the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), who made the announcement in a statement in Lagos on Monday, as saying that the centre will provide the oil and gas industry with the crucial elements of competitive advantage in a shifting global energy environment.

“The integrated centre will also entrench Nigeria’s status as a regional leader and position the nation for significant global impact in the provision of value-added services and breakthrough solutions for the industry in years and decades to come,” he said.

According to him, the centre was designed to drive the three-pronged priorities of protection, value and cost efficiency that are vital to the reliability, development and sustainability of the oil and gas industry.

The DPR boss also said that the NOGEC complex was designed to house separate flagship centres, including the Command and Control Centre for Search, Rescue and Surveillance (SeRAS) and the National Enhanced Oil Recovery Centre (NIORC), in order to cover all the main areas of the industry in a holistic manner.

Auwalu said, “SeRAS is an industry-wide programme established to enhance safety management, emergency preparedness and response, as well as bed space management and logistics services across the industry.”

“The SeRAS Command and Control Centre (CCC), established at the NOGEC Centre, Lagos, will entrench safe practices, drive cost reduction and improve operational efficiency across the industry.”

“Two other Rescue Coordination Centres (RCC) will be set up at Osubi and Brass, in the first instance, for effective coverage of all areas of operations,” he said.
