Chevron Nigeria Limited (CNL), operator of the NNPC/Chevron Joint Venture, has described as false report of spill in its Funiwa field located in CNL’s Eastern Operational areas, in Bayelsa State of Nigeria.
The General Manager, Policy, Government and Public Affairs; Mr. Deji Haastrup, said, “Any report of spill in our CNL Funiwa field is false in its entirety and we advise all enquiries about CNL operations to be directed to us instead of third parties.”
Haastrup said that this clarification has become necessary in view of reports by some news media alleging that there has been a spill in CNL’s Funiwa field. He emphasized that CNL conducts its operations to ensure the safety of the people and the environment at all times.
“CNL reiterates its commitment to effective environmental management in line with one of its core values of protecting people and the environment in all its operations,” Haastrup said.
