Oil has been an important part of the Nigerian economy since the 1950’s when vast petroleum reserves were discovered in the Delta region. As a result of foreign oil sales Nigeria has been able to benefit financially from oil production. As a result of the oil industry in Nigeria and the practices that the oil production companies employ there has been both local and global concern over the impact that this production has had on the environment.
We realize that the negative environmental impact is unintentional and the oil companies are doing what they can to lessen the impact. We at Obinno Energy Services can increase the production of oil while lessening the impact on the environment. Our processes aid those locally impacted by the environmental degradation as well as appeal to other nations that are concerned with the oil practices.
Governments and oil companies have been accused of failing to enforce environmental protection against the oil damage caused by oil companies. We would like to change this impression by offering technologies and techniques to reduce the impact of oil production on the environment.
The main global and local concerns surrounding the oil industry are:
We aid the oil companies in making their practices more environmentally sound. One of the ways that we address the deficiencies in the infrastructure is by effectively using the waste products from the oil industry. For example the disposal of gas from flaring could be used in the generation of power for urban and rural electrification.
Other wastes could be used by the petro chemical industry for things like plastics, synthetic fibers, detergents and solvents. Instead of burning the gases and negatively impacting the environment this process would give electric power to villages that would otherwise be without.
Our processes limit the impact on the environment without financial strain to the oil companies.
