Published

on

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has agreed with its partners to settle all outstanding issues surrounding the development of Oil Mining Lease (OML), 130.

Dr kennie Obateru, Spokesman for the corporation disclosed in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.

The partners are China National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC), and South Atlantic Petroleum (SAPETROL).

Obateru said that the move was in line with the effort to meet the target of revving up production to three million barrels per day.

He said it would also unlock gas revenues to the tune of about 225 million dollars in the short term and 510 million dollars in the long run for the country.

He quoted the NNPC Group Managing Director, Malam Mele Kyari, as saying at the signing of Head of Terms (HoT), agreement with the partners that the deal was part of the Corporation’s Production Sharing Contract (PSC), Dispute Resolution and Renewal Strategy of 2017.

Kyari said that the resolution was aimed at securing out of court settlement of all disputes around the 1993 Production Sharing Contracts (PSC), and agreeing on terms for their renewal.

He explained that the dispute arose from recognition of the certain cost and discordant interpretation of the fiscal terms of the PSC by NNPC and the contractor parties.

“With the resolution and signing of HoT, apart from unlocking over 225 million dollars of gas revenues, it will also enable settlement of renewal fees.

“It will create a conducive environment to further development of OML 130 with associated benefits to the federation.

“We are doing this with every other partner in the PSC dispute, we believe that we can close this engagement and conversation with all of you.

“The HoT will clearly enable us to proceed and have a full settlement, and this will benefit all of us,” Kyari said

He commended CNOOC and SAPETROL for their understanding while expressing delight that the HoT would facilitate the conclusion of all renewal issues.

Also, Managing Director of CNOOC, Mr. Xie Vincent Wensheng, said the agreement had opened a new chapter in his company’s relationship with NNPC, stressing that it had provided a win-win situation for all parties.

On his part, Managing Director of SAPETROL, Mr. Toyin Adenuga, said the resolution of the dispute was a very important step toward further development of OML 130 and other new fields as the terms were now clearly spelled out.

The execution of the HoT signals the resolution of a tax dispute that arose from the 2.3 billion dollars acquisition of a 45 percent stake in OML 130 by CNNOC from SAPETRO in 2006.

The OML 130 consists of the Akpo and Egina fields which have been producing since 2009 and 2018 respectively.

It is operated by Total Upstream Nigeria Ltd which holds a 24 percent stake, while Petrobras Oil and Gas BV and SAPETRO hold 16 percent and 15 percent stakes respectively.

Sniffing dogs to detect Covid-19 at Dubai airport

Published

on

Coronavirus-sniffing dogs capable of detecting the infection with 92 per cent accuracy have been recruited to vet travellers arriving in the United Arab Emirates at Dubai airport.

All travellers must be tested for COVID-19 prior to their trip before showing the confirmed negative result on arrival.

According to DailyMail UK, Dubai International Airport has now also introduced the use of police sniffer dogs who are capable of detecting coronavirus among passengers within minutes.

It comes as the UAE reported a total of 61,163 coronavirus cases and 351 deaths.

Dubai’s Ministry of Interior in a statement stated that,

“Data and studies showed that detection of presumed Covid-19 cases achieved approximately 92 per cent in overall accuracy.

“Figures indicate that dogs can quickly detect infected cases, help protect key sites, effectively deal with huge crowds and secure large events, airports, etc.”

The process begins with a sample of body odour being taken from a passenger’s armpit before it is placed inside a container in an isolated room.

The specially-trained dogs then sniff the samples through a funnel-like contraption and, if they detect coronavirus, the passenger is then directed to take the nasal PCR test.

The dogs never come in direct contact with the passengers.

Sniffer dogs have previously been used to detect several other diseases that can affect body odor such as cancer and malaria.

Enugu govt urges proper exclusive breastfeeding habit

Published

on

It said this entailed giving the baby water for the first six months without mixing with any form of food.

Dr George Ugwu, Executive Secretary, Enugu State Primary Health Care Development Agency (ENS-PHCDA), disclosed this in an interview with the Newsmen in Enugu on Saturday.

Ugwu spoke on the background of the ongoing month-long statewide exclusive breastfeeding sensitization organized by ENS-PHCDA, which started on Aug. 1.

He said that during exclusive breastfeeding, the feeding of the baby should be done on the baby’s demand for food and “never on the personal timing or convenience of the nursing mother’’.

The executive secretary also said that the nursing mother should adopt a right and up-right sitting position during breastfeeding as well as ensure that the baby’s head is slightly up-right.

He said that the massive statewide sensitization on exclusive breastfeeding at PHC centers and public places/gatherings would be used to teach nursing mothers local and cheap nutritious foods that would assist them in doing exclusive breastfeeding.

According to him, we want exclusive breastfeeding to support the Agency routine and special immunizations for us to produce fast-growing and developing babies and in the long run, reduce illness among infants generally.

“The state government has trained, retrained, and deployed state and local government health and exclusive breastfeeding educators, local health focal persons, and volunteers on vital exclusive breastfeeding messages and demonstrations.

“This move coupled with our ongoing routine and special immunizations will definitely reduce the health burden of infants within the state.

“It will largely complement what Her Excellency, Mrs. Monica Ugwuanyi, is already doing on ensuring that children in Enugu State do not have stunted growth/development due to malnutrition and lack of nutritious feeding from the early days of life.’’

The executive secretary also emphasized the importance of early initiation of breastfeeding of the child within the first one hour of birth, and exclusively, running for six months without water.

He said that there was a need to introduce solid local nutritious foods after six months to complement continuous exclusive breastfeeding, meant to last for two years or beyond.

“Breast milk remains the only prescribed and balanced food for babies as it contains natural antibodies that help fight viruses and bacteria, as well as lower babies’ risk of having asthma or allergies,’’ he said.

Newsmen report that 2020 World Breastfeeding Week, which was held from Aug. 1 to Aug. 7, had the themed; “Support Breastfeeding for a Healthier Planet.’’
