NNPC Ltd. Secures Key Security Certification for All Jetties

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (NNPC) has reaffirmed its commitment to process improvement, regulatory compliance, and performance excellence.

Mr. Inuwa Danladi, NNPC’s Executive Vice President of Business Services, made this announcement while discussing the recent certification of the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code Compliance granted by the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).

The ISPS certification, obtained in April 2024 and covering all NNPC jetties nationwide, is essential for the Company’s business operations. It helps prevent potential disruptions and financial losses.

In addition to showcasing NNPC’s ongoing regulatory compliance, Mr. Danladi mentioned that the certification allows the Company to join the Global Integrated Shipping Information System (GISIS). This enhances NNPC’s reputation as a safe and reliable business destination and may lower its insurance premiums.

Mr. Danladi detailed some of the rigorous steps taken to secure the certification. These included upgrading security facilities at ports and jetties, establishing the ISPS Code Command Centre, and engaging a NIMASA Recognized Security Officer (RSO) to manage key regulatory processes.

He also highlighted the development of the Port Facility Security Assessment (PFSA) and Port Facility Security Plan (PFSP), along with a meticulous Verification Inspection Exercise (VIE) conducted by NIMASA. These efforts underscore NNPC’s commitment to maintaining the highest standards of maritime security.

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