Total reaffirms commitment to due process, zero tolerance for corruption
Following a petition from the Indigenous Vessels Operators Association of Nigeria to the Senate Committee on Local Content, Total Upstream Nigeria Limited (TUPNI), and the National Petroleum Investment Management Services (NAPIMS), last week appeared before the Committee to clarify the call for tender for the provision of support vessels.
Following the Senate Committee’s meeting, some media articles reported allegations of bribery and potential conflict of interest in the contracting process.
Total Upstream however in a statement signed by its External Relations Manager, Charles Ebereonwu, said it has strict conflict of interest and compliance policies, and rejects all forms of bribery and corruption.
“Total Upstream Nigeria Limited and its partners remain committed to the development of Nigerian Content and will continue to maintain strong and steadfast partnerships with the Nigerian government, NNPC and indigenous companies in developing the country’s hydrocarbon industry,” it added.
