The  Group Managing Director of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC Mele Kyari, who was appointed on July 7, 2019, has said that saving the Corporation over $3 billion from arbitrations held against the Corporation is one his  biggest achievements.

According to him, his achievements include, the attainment of over 2 billion litres of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) reserve, completion of Phase1 of Port Harcourt Refinery rehabilitation exercise, discovery of oil in Kolmani River-II Well and the re-opening of OML 25 flow station after two years of inactivity as a result of community issues between the host community/Belema Oil and Shell Petroleum Development Company.

He seized the opportunity of the event to update members of staff on the recent NNPC top management retreat, which prescribed a five-step approach for the corporation to attain global excellence via the TAPE agenda (Transparency, Accountability and Performance Excellence).

He listed the steps to include: well defined processes benchmarked to world-class oil & gas company requirements, right cost structure that guarantees value realization and profitability, goals, priorities and performance guarantee, suitable governance structure for strategic business units and entrenching team work and collaboration with all key stakeholders.
