President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan yesterday Thursday 14th August 2014, commissioned the N90 billion Uquo gas processing facility in Esit Eket, Akwa Ibom.

The gas processing facility is owned by Accugas Limited, a subsidiary of Seven Energy International Limited. It is an indigenous integrated oil and gas development, production and distribution company.

The facility is expected to further boost the country’s power supply.

At the commissioning, GEJ announced that he was impressed and commended the company.
“We are happy with what we have seen today. Seven Energy and Frontier Oil deserve commendation for combining their individual capacities to deliver this project, which will have multiplier effect on the economy such as increasing national power output, employment opportunities for the host communities and Nigerians and additional revenue for both the Federal Government and Akwa Ibom State.”, said the commander-in-chief.

Present at the commissioning ceremony were Minister of Petroleum Resources Diezani Alison-Madueke, Minister of Power Chinedu Nebo, Executive Secretary Nigerian Content Development & Monitoring Board Ernest Nwapa and Minister of Tourism, Culture and National Orientation Edem Duke.

Akwa Ibom Governor Godswill Akpabio and the first lady Ekaete Akpabio were also present.

The Uquo Field is one of the 24 marginal fields awarded to indigenous companies by the  Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) in 2003 as part of the Federal Government’s Marginal Field Programme aimed at increasing reserves, production, employment, local content and indigenous participation in the upstream oil and gas business.

    This man is on mission to change Nigeria’s economy but he just has bad luck. Ever since he gaines power terrorism has become extreme and now the Ebola epidemic is distracting from his economic development mission. He needs to pray something is wrong. So many things are happening that is distracting from his effort and it doesnt help that he’s an awful communicator. I just pray that we can get through these terrible events and get back to working on poverty and unemployment issue.
