Two international oil majors, Shell and Schlumberger and Nigeria’s Techno Oil Ltd. have clinched awards for excellence in service delivery to Africa’s largest economy, Nigeria.
The awards were bestowed on the companies on Thursday at the 6th Nigeria International Energy Summit (NIES 2023) Industry Awards in Abuja.
Techno Oil was recognised for coming from a humble beginning 35 years ago to grow into an integrated, wholly indigenous company with diverse portfolios in prime investments in oil and gas, energy, infrastructure and manufacturing.
Receiving the award, the Group Managing Director of Techno Oil, Mrs. Nkechi Obi, described the award as another recognition in the determination of the company to give diligent services to Nigeria.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the NIES Lifetime Achievement Award celebrates industry executives, who make remarkable contributions to change the face of the energy industry, and who have also demonstrated outstanding leadership and performance over the years.
