The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Maikanti Baru, has challenged Nigerian engineers to come up with technologies to help deepen the development of renewable energy in the country.
The NNPC helmsman threw the challenge during a courtesy call on him by members of the executive committee of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), Abuja Branch, led by its Chairman, Engr. Chinasaokwu Okolie.
A statement by spokesman of the corporation, Ndu Ughamadu, said the GMD highlighted some of the corporation’s strides in the development of renewable energy across various states of the country using abundant natural resources like palm oil, cassava, and sugarcane.
He said the projects would help create the much needed linkage between the energy and agricultural sectors and urged members of the NSE to come up with technologies and strategies to enhance the integration process for the growth of the economy.
He said NNPC was committed to producing clean hydrocarbons in an environment-friendly manner for the benefits of all Nigerians.
Engr. Okolie commended the GMD for his purposeful leadership which has led to greater investor confidence and growth of daily crude oil production from about 1.5 million barrels per day (mbpd) to the current 2.3mbpd.
