Count us out of Escravos-Lagos pipeline project, Chevron tells Gbaramatu youths, others

•Chevron provides job to indigenes nominated by the RDCs-Esimaje

•Anyone with complaint should channel it via RDCs or CCDC – CNL

A new twist was on Monday added to the impasse between the Gbaramatu Youth Council (GYC) worldwide, the Nigeria Welders Association (NWA) Gbaramatu Unit on one hand and Chevron Nigeria Limited on the other hand as CNL denied knowledge of Escravos-Lagos Pipeline project.

Chevron also told GbaramatuVoice that if such project is ongoing, they are not the one behind it.

The organization made this known when contacted by GbaramatuVoice Newspaper for their position on the raging controversy which has increased the hostility and rivalries among the host communities.

Responding to this question as posed, Mr. Esimaje Brikinn, General Manager Policy, Government and Public Affairs, stated that Chevron Nigeria Limited is not aware of, and is not handling any Escravos-Lagos pipeline project.

In his words, “Chevron Nigeria Limited (CNL), operator of the joint venture between the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and CNL (NNPC/CNL JV), is not aware of and is not handling any Escravos-Lagos pipeline project.

He further stated that CNL relates with communities and associations in its areas of operation through the Regional Development Committees (RDCs) under the Global Memorandum of Understanding (GMoU), and or through the Coastal Community Development Committees (CCDCs).

“CNL relates with communities and associations in its areas of operation through the Regional Development Committees (RDCs) under the Global Memorandum of Understanding (GMoU), and/or through the Coastal Community Development Committees (CCDCs), the equivalent of the RDCs in the offshore areas, under the Offshore Memorandum of Understanding (OMoU). Under the GMoU/OMoU, CNL provides job opportunities to community workers nominated by the RDCs or CCDCs through a transparent selection process.”

Esimaje further pointed out that Under the Global Memorandum of Understanding; Chevron provides job opportunities to workers nominated by the RDCs or CCDCs through a transparent selection process.

Chevron, therefore, encouraged all associations and groups with concerns and interests to channel them through their respective RDCs or CCDCs.

“We encourage all associations and groups with concerns and interests to channel them through their respective RDCs or CCDCs.” Esimaje added.

It could be recalled that the Nigerian Welders Association, Gbaramtu Unit carried out a peaceful protest on Monday 30th October, 2017 to press home their demand to be involved in the 30” project. The Gbaramatu Youth Council (GYC) worldwide has in the same vein recently condemned the marginalization of the welders and the Gbaramatu youths by the handlers of the project.

The project, the group explained has to do with the laying of pipes from Escravos Tank Farm to Dangote Refinery in Lagos State.
