Kyari said: “From all indications, all issues of energy scarcity ithe country would be over in the next 10 years.”

He described the NNPCL as the largest partner to all the oil-producing companies in Nigeria, assuring that its role in the divestment of the international oil companies from onshore and shallow water assets in the country was that of a facilitator and not an obstacle.

Kyari said by its statutory mandate as the enabler of national energy security, the NNPCL’s role is to ensure that there is optimal and sustainable production from the divested assets to guarantee energy security for the benefit of Nigerians.
