Acting Managing Director of Nigerdock, David Murray, said, “Nigerdock is proud to have been entrusted with the opportunity to deliver this landmark training. This great achievement would not have been possible without the effort and drive of our very talented and highly resourceful Training Centre team, our Subject Matter Experts and workforce in general who have shown diligence and dedication from the very start of this project.

Without doubt they are the future of this great nation. It is the duty of all entities involved in the Nigerian oil and gas market including government, international and national oil companies, international service companies and Nigerian services companies of which Nigerdock is a proud key member, to put in place the environment in which these young people can continue their development. I wish all of them the absolute best in their future endeavours,”
