The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC Ltd.), has reiterated its commitment to sustain its move towards process improvement, regulatory compliance and performance excellence.

This is coming as the NNPC Ltd. bagged the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency’s (NIMASA) Compliance Certification on Ship, Port Security.

Mr Inuwa Danladi, the Executive Vice President, Business Services, NNPC Ltd. said this while speaking on the recent certification of the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code Compliance obtained by the Company, from NIMASA.

The ISPS certification, issued in April 2024 and covering all NNPC Ltd. jetties nationwide, is crucial for the Company’s business continuity as it prevents potential operational disruptions and financial losses.

Danladi on Sunday in a statement issued by Olufemi Soneye, the Chief Corporate Communications Officer, NNPC Ltd. said the certification also granted the Company entry into the Global Integrated Shipping Information Syste
m (GISIS).

This, he said would enhance its reputation as a safe and reliable business destination and potentially reducing the company’s insurance premiums.

He listed some of the rigorous processes followed in obtaining the certification to include the upgrading of relevant security facilities at the nation’s ports and jetties and the establishment of the ISPS Code Command Centre.

He also included the engagement of NIMASA Recognised Security Officer (RSO), who played a crucial role in managing key regulatory processes.

‘The development of Port Facility Security Assessment (PFSA); Port Facility Security Plan (PFSP), coupled with the meticulous Verification Inspection Exercise (VIE) from NIMASA.

‘It also underscores NNPC’s commitment to ensuring adherence to the highest standards of maritime security in the Company’s operations.

‘This achievement is a testament to our consistent dedication, and we pledge to continue striving towards attaining regulatory excellence in all our operations,” Danladi said.
