Tenders: Nigerian vessels to get priority from 2016 – NCDMB


The Nigeria Content Development and Monitoring Board, NCDMB, says Nigerian-built and owned vessels would as from January 2016 be given first consideration in tenders.
‎Executive Secretary of NCDMB, Mr. Denzil Amagbe Kentebe, ‎who disclosed this at the recent 5th edition of the Practical Nigerian Content event held in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, saying the intervention would ensure the development of a thriving ship-building industry with all the benefits in job creation, retention of revenue and technology acquisition.
He said ‎the board was now well-positioned to galvanise the industry towards local construction, repairs and maintenance of marine vessels and rigs.
“In the area of asset ownership, our Marine Services Strategy and Offshore Rig Acquisition Strategy has created a new wave of indigenous owners of marine assets servicing the oil and gas industry.
“The growth in number of Nigerian-owned assets has also resulted in significant growth in utilisation of Nigerian financial, legal and insurance services handling marine services and drilling contract transactions.
“More Nigerians are now employed as cadets, engineers, rig managers, drillers etc. on marine vessels and rigs,” he said.
Commenting on human capital development, the NCDMB Executive Secretary said the board’s ‎training and attachment scheme has enabled thousands of Nigerians to acquire relevant skills and many of those involved are now gainfully employed in the oil and gas industry.

    are we now just pushing this. it should have being included in every contract we sign. the federal and state govt should include local content in every contract the award. when the Chinese loan us money, they ensure that raw material and product are purchased from china, Chinese manager are used and labor also Chinese. the company is also Chinese, and Nigeria has to also pay interest on that money. There should be a complete and total ban on all MDA importing anything that is locally produced and can be locally produced. every government contract should have a 90% local content.
