The Senate Committee on Marine Transport has insisted that all oil and gas cargoes should be carried out at the Onne Port Complex operated by Integrated Logistics Services Limited (INTELS).
According to a statement issued by Intels recently, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Marine Transport, Senator Ahmed Yerima has assured that oil and gas businesses will be carried out at the Onne Port Complex since such transactions were meant to happen at the facility.
Yerima gave the assurance when he led the Senate Committee on Marine Transport on a facility tour of Onne Port Complex.
The Senator said that following the meetings of stakeholders within the Niger Delta and President Muhammad Buhari, oil and gas businesses will come here since oil and gas businesses are located in this port (Onne).
He also added that the tour was part of the oversight function of the committee and that the main purpose of the visit is to make an assessment of the performances of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), concessionaires and terminal operators and to know their challenges.
Yerima decried the low activities at the Onne Port Complex which he said was as a result of the current economic situation in the country and the activities of certain port operators who refused to adhere to the terms of the concession agreements.
“The chairman who was elated with the massive investment, high quality and giant infrastructural development, deployed by the port concessionaire, Intels Nigeria Limited, insisted that the Senate Committee would ensure that all revenue accruable to the government account were paid accordingly.
