The House of Representatives 72-hour ultimatum to the Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas, NLNG to submit documents on waste management/disposal component of the final Investment decision in the NLNG Train-7 Gas Project has ended.
The House last Thursday, handed down the directive through its “Ad-hoc Committee on the Investigation of the Non-Inclusion of Waste Management/Disposal of Sludge in the NLNG Train-7 Gas Project and Other Infringement by Oil Companies/Multinationals.
Chairman of the committee, Hon. Agom Jarigbe Agom at an investigative hearing with NLNG officials said that the company had failed to submit its financial investment documents.
He told newsmen at the end of the hearing that the mandate of the committee was to investigate the environmental challenges and non-inclusion of the waste management disposal in the NLNG gas project.
“That’s why we invited them and we’ve given them an ultimatum of 72 hours to provide the final investment documents; the component of it that has to do with waste management in the train 7 gas project.The meeting was quite interactive and very revealing. I think we are making progress.”
The lawmaker said that though the local content component was not really their concern as a parliament, they would ensure it would be implemented.
Eyono Fatayi-Williams, General Manager, External Relations and Sustainable Development, NLNG, who led the delegation of staff said the company wi make available the documents. “It was a very interactive session. They requested some document and will provide them”, she said.
