The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) on Thursday reiterated its commitment to sustaining the supply of 10 per cent of India’s crude oil demand.
The Corporation’s Group Managing Director (GMD), Mele Kyari, renewed the commitment when he hosted the Indian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Abhay Thakur, a statement by NNPC spokesman Ndu Ughamadu said.
The GMD said Nigeria, through the corporation, would continue to support India’s energy security, adding that the recent Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in the area of energy between Nigeria and India would be consummated to further strengthen the bilateral relations between the two countries, The Nation reports.
It said Kyari stated that the NNPC was desirous of growing the energy cooperation with India and that it was time to progress from just talking to walking the talk.
“We are ready to have a robust engagement with the Indian trade team to provide a win-win energy scenario between us. Every trade opportunity that is available will be fully explored,” the report quoted Kyari as saying.
