Oil Drilling Operation
Nigeria’s oil and gas sector is set to attract a new investment as Alfa Laval, a Swedish equipment manufacturer has concluded arrangement, in collaboration with an indigenous firm, Jocam Nigeria Limited, to provide parts and maintenance services for the oil industry.
The investment will focus on the areas of skill acquisition, equipment maintenance and technology transfer.
Speaking on the initiative, the Managing Director of Alfa Laval, Mrs Maryne Lemvik noted that Nigeria was a very fast-growing economy, which has become globally relevant to equipment makers like her company.
“We see growth and opportunities in Nigeria and we want to be fully involved. Our ambition is to provide for companies in the Oil and Gas sector a wide range of key solutions designed for increased efficient performance”, she said.
Speaking on the partnership, the Managing Director of Jocam, Mr Nnamdi Okam said upcoming Nigeria Oil and Gas (NOG) conference would afford the visiting team an opportunity to interact with clients with a view to understanding the challenges of performance and maintenance of the equipment.
He noted that Nigeria’s oil and gas industry was yet to attain its full potential because a lot of key technologies and expertise needed for optimal operation were still sourced from abroad.
Established in 1883 with headquarters in Sweden and regional offices across the world, Alfa Laval is a global manufacturer of equipment specially designed for the oil and gas sector.
