PRESIDENT TINUBU ASSURES INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY FOR OFFSHORE, ONSHORE INVESTMENTS                                                18-12-23

By Sadiq Aminu                                                      President Bola Tinubu has assured the international investment community that his administration would ensure that Nigeria remains a top-level destination for offshore and onshore investments.

Receiving the Group Chairman and CEO of Total Energies Worldwide in Abuja, Mr. Patrick Pouyanne, the President reiterated the federal government’s commitment to removing anti-investment impediments in the country.

“We are committed to removing all cobwebs and anti-investment impediments in the oil and gas industry. We have a clear path that we are committed to pursuing. We are ready to work with you,” President Tinubu said.

He commended Total Energies for its years of exploration and investment in Nigeria’s oil and gas sector, citing the feat as evidence of the company’s commitment and confidence in Nigeria.

President Tinubu assured the delegation that his administration was determined to improve the investment climate in Nigeria, emphasising that the aim of the Petroleum Industry Act (PIA) is to create a favourable investment and work environment.

He affirmed his administration’s commitment to making the necessary efforts for industrial peace, harmony, and development.

“The moment I took over, there was a clear path that we set out to pursue, and we will ensure that Nigeria remains a top-level investment choice in the dynamics of the offshore and onshore sectors.

“We will review troublesome areas, fiscally and otherwise, to incentivize gas production in the age of transition to cleaner energy. We are ready to make a difference as a government. The good handshake that we have is for partnership and to accelerate and incentivize gas production in pursuit of the energy transition,” he said.

The Global CEO of Total Energies Worldwide, Patrick Pouyanne, , informed President Tinubu that Nigeria was “very important” for Total Energies, accounting for 8 to 10 percent of the company’s worldwide total production and over 18 percent of its global investment.

“Mr. President, we are ready to invest $6 billion in the coming years. We are looking extensively at more deepwater production and gas production opportunities across the terrain. We welcome your policies and your personal commitment to ensuring that all required fiscal incentives are provided while security issues are tackled. Everything is here. We just need to conclude with the tweaks and changes necessary to unlock the outstanding potential in both oil and gas,” the Total Energies Worldwide Group Chairman stated.

Pouyanne also highlighted the company’s commitment to maintaining its zero-flaring position in Nigeria both heal the environment and monetise available gas resources in support of Nigeria’s Energy Transition Plan.
