Chairman and Managing Director, Chevron Nigeria Limited (CNL), Jeffrey Ewing, has said the company will boost investment as part of measures to support the Federal Government’s efforts in the oil and gas sector, The Guardian reports.
Ewing, who spoke on the sideline of the Nigerian International Petroleum Summit (NIPS) in Abuja, insisted that Africa remained key to the future of the industry.
“I see a bright future for Nigeria and Africa in the oil and gas industry. The oil and gas industry is here for a long time,” Ewing said, adding that Chevron would look for ways to make every opportunity become a reality.
He disclosed that the oil firm would remain very active in the joint venture (JV) operations in Nigeria and across Africa, adding that there was an urgent need for international companies to help Africa achieve projected objectives in the petroleum industry.
