The Distinguished Senator representing Akwa lbom North East in the 8th Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Chair, Senate Committee on Gas, Senator Bassey Albert says there is a legislation that is underway that will compel the Oil and Gas companies in Nigeria to think of affecting their host communities positively as part of the innovations brought into the on going legislative processes that the (PIGB) Petroleum Industry Governance Bill is currently going through
Senator Albert dropped the hint in the United States of America on Monday where he is part of a high powered Senate delegation currently in the US to attend several conferences to boost legislation in the oil and Gas sector in Nigeria.
OBA as he is famously called added “”Things must change in our oil and gas industry for Nigerians and the host communities to feel the impact of these organizations”.
The team today Monday engaged Chevron US on their relationship with the host communities in their deep water operations in the Gulf of Mexico.
