The Nigeria LNG Limited (NLNG) has commissioned its ultra-modern and smart corporate head office complex in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike commissioned the building on Wednesday at NLNG’s Amadi Ama location.
As part of the launching, the governor was led on a tour immediately after the ribbon-cutting by the chairman of NLNG’s board of directors Edmund Daukoru together with the managing director/chief executive officer Tony Attah; deputy managing director Sadeeq Mai-Bornu; and other members of the company’s senior management team.
The head office is a four-storey complex with cluster buildings occupying 76,000 square metres of land and equipped with one board room, 121 office spaces, 51 meeting and huddle rooms, smart and ergonomic workstations, a library, a press centre and a creche. Other features of the office include a transit lounge for the company’s jetty, a warehouse, a dedicated fire station, a gym, two banking halls, an ATM gallery, ample green area.
The governor had in 2015 flagged-off the construction of the building at its ground-breaking ceremony.
At the commissioning, Mr Wike commended the NLNG management for taking a bold step towards strengthening its relationship with the people of Rivers. He stated that NLNG’s presence in Port Harcourt spoke volumes of the company’s respect for Rivers people. He added that the decision by the company to construct its head office in the state showed that Rivers is safe for business.
“I am here because NLNG has shown a lot of commitment and support for the host communities and the state. The company has done well and has set an example for other companies to emulate. I am happy with what the company has done for the host communities during the construction of the building. That is what is expected. It has a very good relationship with its hosts in Bonny and in other parts of the state and I believe it will continue to enjoy a hitch-free business in the state,” Wike said.
According to Attah, the building and commissioning of the corporate head office was in line with its vision of being a global LNG company, helping to build a better Nigeria.
“The commissioning of this complex is coming at such an auspicious time in the life of Nigeria LNG, a time when we have astutely proven our self as an excellent and reliable player in the global LNG market with 20 years record and still counting. Our doggedness towards achieving even more success in both the international market and the domestic energy sector has prompted the commencement of our Train 7 project which has been avidly socialized among all critical stakeholders,” he said.
