Chairman of Petroleum Product Monitoring Services (PPMS), Prince Henry Omorodion, has assured Nigeria’s oil and gas workers who had threatened to stop production due to the menace of vandals that adequate logistics are being put in place to curtail the excesses of the vandals.

In a statement yesterday in Lagos, Prince Omorodion, who is also the Chairman of Hensmor oil company, disclosed that PPMS is in partnership with the House of Representatives with a view to finding permanent solution to oil theft in the country.

Omorodion was reacting to threats by the oil and gas workers union, which last on Wednesday said the union members would suspend production if the government fails to checkmate the vandals. He disclosed that PPMS has brought in experts from Georgia, USA, to help fight the menace.

The oil magnate equally disclosed that pressure from the Presidency and from Chairman, House Committee on Petroleum, Hon. Muraina Saubana Ajibola, facilitated the action of PPMS in bringing the foreign experts and gadgets into the country.

He revealed that PPMS and the House Committee would meet next week to inspect the gadgets, adding that the gadgets would be mounted at a strategic location for effective monitoring and curbing oil theft.

“This is a field well known to us,” Omorodion said. “PPMS introduced petroleum monitoring in all parts of the country since Olusegun Obasanjo’s regime.”
