ExxonMobil has put in place some measures to sustain oil and gas production as personnel embarked on strike to back their demand for the reinstatement of sacked employees of the company among other demands, Vanguard reports.

Investigations showed that adequate personnel have been mobilised to offshore production platforms and loading terminals in order to guarantee production and export. A company source who confirmed the development indicated that adequate security has also been put in place to ensure their safety at work. “The strike has not affected and will not likely affect output as a result of the proactive measure the company adopted to mitigate the possible impact of the strike.” he said.
