Shell pleads with Imo communities for understanding


Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited (SPDC), has pleaded with its host communities in Imo State to consider the country’s economic situation while making their demands, The Guardian reports

The General Manager, External Relations, SPDC, Igo Weli, represented by the Stakeholder Relations Manager, Dr. Alice Ajeh, made the appeal on Tuesday, during a stakeholders’ engagement forum held at Imo Trade and Investment Centre, Owerri. The objective of the open frank discussion was to provide opportunity to interact and collaborate with external stakeholders on oil and gas issues.

He also recalled that large scale vandalism had made Shell lose much production opportunities, which in turn, reduced its revenue accruing from the oil bearing communities. “Things must change. These are the realities on ground,” he added.
