Chevron Nigeria Moves Base To Reduce Operating Cost

Chevron Nigeria Limited has relocated its base for logistics support activities from Onne Shore in Rivers to Warri and Escravos in Delta.

The General Manager, Policy Government and Public Affairs, EsimajeBrikinn confirmed the change of base to journalists recently in Lagos.

He said, ‘’ the migration of Chevron’s shore base from Onne to Escravos and Warri is to enable the oil gaint to consolidate its base operations and reduce its operational footprints.’’

According to him, ‘’this will help in reducing Chevron’s operating cost and increasing efficiency for business sustainability.

“Chevron will continue to conduct its operations reliably and efficiently, while working with the Federal and State Governments towards the development of the oil and gas industry and the Nigerian economy,” he said.

Ogu Youth Congress had earlier threatened to paralyse operations at Onne Port of oil giant, if it proceeded with plans to move its logistics base out of the Onne Oil & Gas Free Zone.

Speaking for the Congress, the President, Comrade TaripakayeGbobbo said,‘’the planned relocation of the base from the Onne Oil & Gas Free Zone would lead to severe economic hardship for the host community.

“The operation of Chevron in our community has helped us a lot because our people are being employed and earning salaries.If Chevron leaves this facility now, it will bring back hunger and increase poverty in the community.

‘’We are opposed to Chevron leaving this facility and besides, our place is peaceful now. There is no crisis, no militancy; so they cannot say they are leaving because of insecurity.’’

Gbobbo expressed the interest of the Group in  dialogue and constructive engagement, saying,’’ the Congress will not fold its arms and allow economic hardship to be foisted on “hapless families” as a result of the planned relocation.’’
