Maikanti Baru, NNPCThe Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation has committed to maximising its environmental management quotient through increased compliance with international standards certification for its processes and operations.

Speaking at an event to mark the 2017 World Environmental Day in Abuja, the NNPC’s Group Managing Director, Dr Maikanti Baru, said the NNPC acknowledges the importance of promoting environmental protection despite the various challenges faced.

He pointed out that the re-commissioned Mosimi and Kano depots have taken pressure off the highways, settlements along the highways and the general ecosystem.

He said, “We have over the years strived to maintain a healthy balance between our operations and the environment we operate in.

“This commitment has remained sacrosanct despite the numerous challenges arising from pipeline vandalism and illegal bunkering activities and outright sabotage that continue to impact on the quality of the environment we aspire to safeguard.”
