Gov. Udom Emmanuel’s tour of the oil and gas exploration site, OML-13 in Atabrikang, Eastern Obolo Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State has left so many people in awe, after it was discovered that the facilities would commence operations by the ending of the year and is capable of engaging over 5,500 young people.
The project seeks to actualize rural and riverine area development drive of Governor Udom Emmanuel as captured in his Completion Agenda to meet the anticipated goal of tackling unemployment and expanding the economic growth of the State.
“I have assessed the level of work done. Most times when we make statements, because people are so used to political statements, they probably think that we are just talking politics. I believe that today Eastern Obolo has seen tremendous progress”, Governor Emmanuel said of the project.
Seven oil fields is at advance stage of completion, with floatation station, storage station and other facilities built in the space of seven months.
The project is undertaken by Sterling Oil in collaboration with the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company, NPDC, Natural Oil Services Limited, NOSL and other partners in oil and gas sector.
