Kyari inaugurates Brass Fertilizer and Petrochemical Company’s board

The Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Cor­poration (NNPC), Engr. Mele Kyari, has implored members of the Board of Directors of the Brass Fertilizer and Petro­chemical Company Limited to resolve issues of gas supply, technical capability and fund­ing confronting the company and come up with viable bankable options that could help drive the project to fruition.

Kyari, who spoke while inaugurating the board of the company, said the Brass Fertil­izer and Petrochemical project, when com­pleted, would lead to sustainable prosperity for Nigeria.

“I know that this project is important to all of us. Monetising gas for us is everything because this is a gas country. There is huge po­tential in gas development and our focus is to add value to gas locally. That means deepening the utilisation of gas in-country. Our interest is always on things that will add value to our local market and local economy”, he said.

He added that the project has potential to boost the nation’s economic growth due to its methanol and fertilizer components which he said could facilitate growth in the agricultural sector.

In his acceptance speech, the chairman of the board and NNPC Chief Operating Officer, Gas and Power, Engr. Yusuf Usman, said that the project was important for both the corpo­ration and the country.

He assured that the board will deliver on its mandate with the cooperation of all stake­holders.

The Chairman of DSV En­gineering, a partner in the project and mem­ber of the Board, Mr. Ben Okoye, expressed delight that the Board had finally been inau­gurated, adding that his company was fully committed to the project.
