See why EU Ambassadors are in Nigeria to visit the (NNPC).

 

European Union (EU) ambassadors in Nigeria paid a courtesy call on the management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) on Monday, with the goal of strengthening the EU’s energy collaboration with Nigeria.

 

This is according to a statement signed by Garba Deen Muhammad, the NNPC’s spokeswoman.

 

NewsReport gathered that  the EU Ambassador in Nigeria, Samuela Isopi, spoke on behalf of the group, saying that due to the current geopolitical scenario in Europe, the continent was interested in extending its cooperation with Nigeria, particularly in the area of a probable rise in liquefied natural gas supply (LNG).

Speaking on behalf of the group, the EU Ambassador in Nigeria, Samuela Isopi, said as a result of the current geopolitical situation in Europe, the continent was interested in strengthening its cooperation with Nigeria particularly in the area of possible increase in the supplies of liquiefied Natural Gas (LNG).

 

“Nigeria is the fourth gas supplier to Europe. At least 40% of the Nigerian LNG is currently exported to Europe. We are not only major clients for Nigeria. We are also major partners in the Oil and Gas sector because some of the companies that are working with you are from Europe. So we share the same interest and same objectives,” Ambassador Isopi added.

 

Responding, the GMD/CEO of NNPC, Mele Kyari, assured the European delegation that the company would continue to deepen its historical relationship with EU companies in Nigeria in order to add more value to its business, particularly towards increasing gas supply to the global market and enhancing domestic gas utilisation.

 

Other diplomats from the European delegation on the visit were: Ambassador of Portugal, Luis Barros; Ambassador of Spain, Juan Sell; Ambassador of Italy, Stefano De Leo and Deputy Head of Mission (France), Olivier Chatelais
