Speaking at the Annual General Meeting of the company in Abuja, Mallam Bello Rabiu, Chief Operating Officer, Upstream of the NNPC who is also the Chairman of NETCO Board of Directors, said the quantum leap in performance is attributable to two major projects undertaken within the period under review.

Rabiu listed the projects to include the Mobil Producing Nigeria Limited Major Integrity Projects (MIPs) EPC m2 and the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC) FPSO Mystras Operations & Maintenance Contract.

He added that the path to increased profitability was made smooth by the enforcement of cost-reduction measures put in place during the period and driven by the doggedness of Management and staff.

“The success was also made possible through the sustained efforts on the part of the company to leverage on the continued strong support of the Shareholders and the Group Managing Director of the NNPC in particular which led to the award of some big-ticket projects,” he said.
