The Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board, on Monday, said the management of Dangote refinery had agreed to select competent Nigerian vendors that would participate in the construction of the plant from the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Joint Qualification System.
The NOGICJQS, which is the database of available capacities in the nation's oil and gas industry, is managed by the NCDMB.A statement from the NCDMB said the Chief Operating Officer, Dangote Refinery Project, Mr. Giuseppe Surace, gave the commitment at the technical meeting held by top officials of the company and the NCDMB at the refinery project site in Lekki, Lagos, last week.
Surace was quoted as saying there were many advantages in patronising the local market, adding, "Nigerian companies will get the first right of refusal. We will procure anything that is available in Nigeria."
