Nigerian Content is about maximizing the use of Nigerian companies on projects, thus developing indigenous service providers and suppliers (manufacturers, fabricators and vendors), to enable them to attain requisite excellence. By maximizing Nigerian participation, projects result in significant local content, engendering technology transfer and development. It is also envisaged that this will induce a spate of manufacturing and spur economic growth.
We pride ourselves as a leading Nigerian Content Champion. We were awarded for this deed by The Nigerian Content Monitoring and Development Board (NCDMB) as the ‘the Champion of Nigerian Content in Nigerian Oil & Gas Industry.’ Things we do in this regard are hinged on two-fundamentals:
- Policy on giving Nigerians first consideration in recruitments and procurements for our projects; Continuous training and development of our Nigerian workforce along structured Learning and Development programs on a regular basis. The essence of this is to transfer technological and managerial capabilities;

Recruitment of Nationals Working Abroad
We source for Nigerians to work on projects through placement of adverts on our employment website, other associated international job websites and local job websites. Additionally, we place advertisements in National Newspapers and use employee referral program that attracts suitable Nigerians for employment.
We have a mixture of programs to achieve our focus of transferring capabilities from our experienced employees (Nigerians and Expatriates) to our young employees. These are:
- TRAINING: Through a combination of on-the job training, in-house and external training programs, workshops and seminars using expert personnel from across the globe and local institutions.
- TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER AND CROSS-LEARNING PLAN: Staff is sent abroad on project assignments where they are exposed to different work, cultural and social environments. Such tasks enable best practice sharing, effective skills transfer and informal networks.
- UNDERSTUDY PLAN: All our expatriates have a least two Nigerians attached to them as understudies to transfer technical and managerial capabilities. Our understudy strategy makes our succession plan active and successful.
- HUMAN CAPITAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN: Graduate Engineers are sourced from NCDMB database and are placed on a structured program learning and development for a period of 1 year in adherence to NCDMB policy.
- MENTOR PLAN: Each Staff is assigned a mentor to maximize the benefit of on-the-job training, provide feedback and support their development.
