The Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) and the Dangote Petroleum Refinery have inaugurated a joint committee that would develop a framework for the implementation of Nigerian Content in the development of the 650,000 barrels per day Dangote Refinery project.

The committee was inaugurated in Lagos recently, with four members drawn from each organisation.

The Executive Secretary, NCDMB, Engr. Simbi Wabote was represented at the event by the Director, Planning, Research and Development, NCDMB, Mr. Daziba Patrick Obah and he stated that the committee would ensure that investments by the Dangote Group in the oil and gas industry complied substantially with the provisions of the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development (NOGICD) Act. He said the success of the refinery project would impact positively on Nigerians and the nation’s economy as well as create about 235,000 direct and indirect jobs.


Obah added that “we cannot over emphasize the importance of this collaboration which we believe will bring Dangote and NCDMB closer towards achieving our respective mandates and results with even better impact on Nigerians and the Nigerian economy from oil and gas operations, projects and activities.”

He charged the committee to institute modalities for the submission and review of statutory reports and conducting performance review sessions, project assessments and verification visits. He however stressed that strategies that would be put in place to implement Nigerian Content in the Refinery Project must not hamper the speed of project execution.

In his comments, Director, Monitoring and Evaluation, NCDMB, Mr. Akintunde Adelana explained that the joint committee was not a corrective measure, rather was aimed at helping the two parties foster alliances and achieve a common goal.

The Chief Operating Officer, Dangote Refinery, Mr. Giuseppe Surace pledged the company’s commitment to complying with the NOGICD Act. He stated further that the company would maximize Nigerian Content in all its operations, including Engineering, Construction, Logistics and Employment.
