President Bola Tinubu on Tuesday received a team of Chevron chiefs led by Clay Neff, president of Chevron International Exploration and Production(CIEP) at the Villa in Abuja.
Neff came with Rick Kennedy, the outgoing chairman and CEO of Chevron Nigeria and his successor Jim Swartz.
Chevron, which has been operating in Nigeria in the last 60 years, is one of the largest suppliers of natural gas to the domestic market.
Among its investment initiatives is the development of the 700km West African Gas Pipeline( WAGP), in partnership with ECOWAS, through which Nigeria supplies gas to Benin, Togo and Ghana. Chevron is interested in partnering with our country in developing our oil and gas resources, leveraging the tremendous human capacity in the country.
President Tinubu thanked the team for the visit and its social investments in 600 communities, where it operates. He noted that Chevron’s gas projects are good for our country and climate change. He asked for a strengthening of the relationship, adding: “Nigeria is interested in investment for growth”.
