Chevron wins multiple awards at NAICE SPE 2017
Chevron Nigeria Limited (CNL) has emerged Best Exhibitor at the 2017 Nigeria Annual International Conference and Exhibition (NAICE).
The operator, which runs a joint venture with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), won the award in Lagos at the event organised by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).
At the award night on August 3, 2017, CNL’s Reservoir Simulation Engineer, Frank Ogbuagu clinched the prize for the Best Technical Paper.
Frank’s paper titled: “Managing Reservoir and Operational Decline Without a Rig: An Okan Case Study,” was co-authored by other CNL employees: Femi Afolayan, Femi Esan and Nsitie Obot.
CNL was adjudged the best exhibitor based on its excellent performance in the assessment criteria of content/quality of material exhibited, aesthetic of booth, audience engagement and conduct of booth personnel.
Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC), an international Consultancy Service Company employed by SPE to appraise the exhibitors, conducted the assessment of exhibitors.
CNL was earlier on July 29, 2017, honoured with a Distinguished Corporate Support Award by the Lagos Section of the SPE, at its annual general meeting at the Eko Hotel and Suites Victoria, Island, Lagos.
Onshore Asset Manager, Eddie Agbongiator, received the award on behalf of the company.
The company’s General Manager, Policy, Government and Public Affairs (PGPA), Mr. Esimaje Brikinn, expressed the company’s appreciation for the recognition.
“We are delighted to receive the awards because SPE and members of the adjudication panel are known to thrive on excellence,” he said.
The PGPA General Manager commended the winners for making the company proud.
He added that the company’s performance was a reflection of its commitment to self-development, professional networking and the overall growth of the oil and gas industry.
