Senate to probe NNPC, IOCs’ boycott of Nigerian pipe manufacturer

The Senate Committee on Local Content says the Senate will investigate the non patronage of a multi-million dollar internationally certified Nigerian pipe manufacturing and coating company, SCC Nigeria Limited, by Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and International Oil Companies.

The Chairman of the committee, Sen. Solomon Adeola, made this known in a statement. He said the committee would investigate the possible breach of the Nigeria Oil and Gas Industry Content Development Act by the NNPC and IOCs beyond the issue of competitive pricing.
Adeola requested the company to furnish the committee with relevant information on their predicament, assuring that the committee would take up the issue with NNPC, IOCs and other stakeholders.
Earlier on the Director of Operations of SCC Nigeria Limited, Mr Wale Adebayo told members of the committee that the company got its last order in 2014.
He said that since then there had been several pipeline contracts in the industry without recourse to the only Nigeria pipe manufacturing and coating company that has all international certifications
