Seven Energy wins award in gas-to-power industry
Seven Energy, one of the leading integrated gas companies in South East Nigeria, with oil and gas interests in the region, has won the prestigious “Impactful Investment in Gas to Power Industry Award” at the recent 2016 Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) Awards.
The LCCI award programme recognises deserving corporate and public institutions that have contributed to commerce and industrial development in different sectors of the Nigerian economy through innovation, business sustainability and positive societal impact.
Commenting on the award, Chief Executive Officer, Seven Energy, Phillip Ihenacho, said: “We are truly honoured to be a recipient of the LCCI award and are pleased that our effort in providing the much needed gas for sustainable power supply and for use by industries to drive economic growth is being recognised. We remain fully committed to delivering on the vision that sees Nigeria powered by its own gas resources”.
The LCCI stated that the group was selected for the award in recognition of its commitment to sustainable power supply in Nigeria through efficient gas delivery. Other reasons include Seven Energy’s Green Team Initiative, an innovative community-based approach to maintain, monitor and clear the Right of Way (RoW) of its gas pipelines and the recent admission of Seven Energy into the Corporate Pillar category of the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights.
The LCCI presents a total of 20 awards to deserving organisations every year and is the largest chamber of commerce in Nigeria with over 1,500 member organisations spread across all sectors.
