Chevron Nigeria Ltd (CNL) has said that it has invested over N20.6 billion in the execution of about 600 projects and programmes in its area of operations since 2005.
Its General Manager (Policy, Government and Public Affairs), Mr Esimaje Brikinn, said this on Thursday, during the official handing over of a cottage hospital built by the Egbema-Gbaramatu Communities Development Foundation (EGCDF).
The project, sponsored by CNL/Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), was handed over to the state government amidst jubilation by community members in Oporoza, Warri South-West Local Government Area.
Brikinn who was represented by Mr Sam Daibo, Area Manager, CNL Warri Office, applauded the partnership among EGCDF, Delta State, CNL/NNPC JV and other stakeholders in the execution of the hospital and other projects.
He said the hospital would improve the quality of life of the people in the community.
The general manager thanked the state government and the traditional rulers for creating an enabling environment for CNL and NNPC to operate.
He said the development had enhanced the implementation of the General Memorandum of Understanding (GMoU) model and other social investment programmes.
Brikinn also lauded the leadership of EGCDF for fulfilling the spirit and objectives of the GMoU.
