Mr Vincenzo Di Lorenzo,Â Managing Director of Brass Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), has said that the company is support of the Nigerian Content Act.
President Goodluck Jonathan signed the Bill into law on April 22. Lorenzo spoke at a workshop on the Nigerian Content Act organised by the LNG and the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) in Port Harcourt on Thursday. He said the company would respect and implement the spirit and letter of the Nigerian Content Law.
Brass LNG is a company set upÂ to produce liquefied natural gas from most of the associated gas that is being flared in the course of crude oil production in the Niger Delta region. It is projected that at the peak of its production, more than 12,000 jobs will be provided for Nigerians. The managing director said, â€œOur support is not only obligatory as good citizens.
â€œIt derives from the foundation of Brass LNGâ€™â€™s cherished values of fairness, hard work and commitment towards making a positive impact on the lives of those we relate with.â€ Lorenzo said that 500 Nigerian workers and 25 expatriates were engaged for early site works at the Brass LNG in 2009 and that the work took 2.5 million hours to be completed.
