FG threatens to sanction expatriates over Train 7 gas project


The Federal Government on Friday said it would sanction erring expatriates for failure to open operational bases in Bonny Island, Rivers, for the Train 7 Gas Project.

Executive Secretary, Nigeria Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB), Simbi Wabote, gave the warning at the formal opening of The Promise Fast Food and Restaurant in Bonny, Rivers.

The Train 7 Project is a joint venture consortium that seeks to boost Nigeria’s Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) output to 30 million tons per annum (mtpa) from 22 million mtpa.

Nigeria’s LNG, Italy’s Saipem, Japan’s Chiyoda Corporation and South Korea’s Daewoo had raised an estimated N6 billion dollars to expand the country’s LNG to Train 7.

But Wabote said that some of the sub-contractors participating in the Train 7 Project had refused to open their offices in Bonny, thereby, denying the youth jobs.

“So, as we prepare to usher in the Train 7 Project, there are a lot of companies that have business in Bonny that do not have offices in Bonny.
