PENGASSAN holds advocacy programme against Oil theft and Pipeline vandalism

The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) began an advocacy program against oil theft and pipeline vandalism. 

The program tagged, "Chasing Oil Thieves and Vandals out of Business" commenced with a Press Conference in Abuja on September 7 2022. 

The President, Comrade Festus Osifo warned that the Association could halt oil production if the government failed to stop the theft. 

Lamenting the effect of the oil theft, Osifo stated that the international oil companies such as Agip, Total, Shell and Addax have stopped oil production in some wells due to the theft and the jobs of workers in these companies are currently threatened.
