Meet the Voltrons of Nigeria’s Oil and Gas Space

Dreg Media Team 14

Say it’s true that if you can make it in New York you can make it anywhere then, Nigeria is the place you go to test those dreams before you try breaking into the global market. Running a business in Nigeria is fashioned by a mix of average challenges and the special Nigerian mix; inconsistent power supply, inadequately trained workforce, unpredictable dollar rate and all the portholes that pilfer profit. This cuts across all industries and reduces productivity.

Maybe the maritime industry has a protective shield against such problems? Wrong. The maritime industry functions in spite of its challenges. This is due to the collective work of NIMASA, the Nigerian Navy, NPA and DPR.

NIMASA logo | Dreg Waters Petroleum and LogisticsThese agencies are the backbone that keeps the petroleum scarcity of Q1 and Q2 of 2016 from being our daily reality. If there is a hint of looming fuel scarcity these organisations work round the clock to abate the threat and keep you smiling and driving. Here are a few of what they do:

  • NIMASA, Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, is responsible for regulations related to Nigerian shipping, maritime labour and coastal waters. They administer and regulate shipping licences as well as certification of seafarers
  • NPA_logo | Dreg Waters Petroleum and LogisticsNPA, Nigerian Port Authority, governs and operates the ports in Nigeria. They are responsible for the daily monitoring of operations. They enact, monitor and enforce port regulations and byelaws.
  • DPR, Department of Petroleum Resource, ensures compliance to petroleum laws, regulations and guidelines in the oil and gas industry. They monitor operations at all locations where crude oil is stored and supervise all petroleum industries operation carried out under licences and leases in the country
  • The Nigerian Navy is tasked with enforcing safety in Nigerian waters. Naval operations include terminating criminal activities in Nigerian maritime environment, surveillance and destruction of illegal refinery sites, capturing of pirate vessels, protecting pipelines and capturing vandals.
