Chevron Nigeria Limited, CNL, operator of the joint venture between the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, and CNL says the fire at the Ojumole Well No. 1in its Western Niger Delta area of operations, has been safely put out. 

 

In a press statement made available to Fresh Angle International Monday July 1, Chevron thanked all stakeholders, including the neighbouring communities, Ondo and Delta State Governments, regulatory authorities as well as security agencies that worked with the NNPC/CNL JV to ensure that the fire incident purportedly caused by third party interference, was safely put out.

 

CNL’s General Manager Policy, Government and Public Affairs, Esimaje Brikinn stated that “accredited independent environmental consultants have been continuously monitoring the environment since the incident occurred with support from regulatory agencies. In addition, CNL employees are on site and normal activities are ongoing in the area.”

 

According to him, CNL is diligently working on all the requisite post-incident activities, which will be consistent with the relevant environmental laws, regulations and guidelines.

 

 

Esimaje reiterated CNL’s commitment to protecting people and the environment, emphasizing that CNL places the highest priority on the health and safety of communities neighbouring its areas of operation, its workforce and the protection of the environment and its assets.

“We continue to conduct our operations safely, reliably and efficiently, with utmost consideration for protection of people and the environment,” he remarked.
