Seven Energy has won “The Sustainability and Responsibility Award” at the 2016 African Assembly of the Oil and Gas Council held recently in London. The award recognises deserving organisations in the energy sector that have demonstrated impactful investments in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), local content, health and safety, training and education, environmental stewardship, regulatory and ethical compliance and community engagement.
In presenting the award to Seven Energy, the oil and gas council cited a number of reasons for honouring the company with this award. Seven Energy’s Green Team Initiative, a pioneering engagement initiative, was launched in June 2015 to ensure that its gas pipelines and associated Rights of Way (ROW) are kept safe, accessible, clear and clean. Through this initiative, over 200 youths across Akwa Ibom and Cross River states have been engaged.
In addition, in October 2015 Seven Energy commenced a weekly community radio programme entitled, ‘Safety and You’ across Akwa Ibom, Cross River and surrounding states. The programme was delivered by Seven Energy staff and provided guidance on a range of safety related subjects such as natural gas pipeline safety, fire safety, electrical safety, pedestrian safety and kerosene and petrol safety.
Seven Energy is currently delivering total gas volumes in excess of 100 million standard cubic feet per day (MMcfpd) to three power stations and a cement factory. This award is coming on the heels of the “Impactful Investment in Gas to Power and Industry” award conferred on Seven Energy by the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
