organized to reward top-performing distributors as well as inspire others
through their exemplary feats. “Our distinctive progress as the leading
downstream oil and gas company is built on the commendable dedication and

OVH Energy Marketing Limited Proffers Customer Satisfaction as An Opportunity in Nigeria’s Deregulated Oil & Gas Sector
maiden edition of the Nigerian Content Midstream - Downstream Oil and Gas
Stakeholders Summit, with the theme, “Maximizing Potentials in the Midstream
and Downstream Oil and Gas Sector – A Local Content Perspective” kicked off on
May 23rd, 2022.
event organized by The Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board
(NCDMB) engaged stakeholders within the industry in top-level dialogue
articulating the agenda for actualizing the full local content potential.
Speakers and Panelists also discussed prospects for driving massive investments
in the Midstream and Downstream sectors of the Nigerian Oil and Gas
second day of the hybrid summit featured a panel discussion with Mr.
Huub Stokman, Chief Executive Officer of OVH Energy Marketing Limited (Oando
licensee), discussing “opportunity areas and challenges of investment
in the petroleum product marketing and bunkering sector.”
Stokman stated that pipelines, depots, trucks and retail sites are priority
areas for investment within the industry. The trucks and depots are critical to
last-mile delivery and should be upgraded with safety features reflective of
modern best practices. He said, “investors measure performance through
returns. To effectively invest in Nigeria’s midstream and downstream oil and
gas sector, players need to increase operational efficiencies and reduce
losses. With the proposed deregulation of the industry backed by the Petroleum
Industry Act, soon Nigeria will have a functioning refinery landscape which
will create value for Nigeria. However, stakeholders must properly capture this
value through safe and sustainable operations down the value chain, otherwise
it will go to waste.”
retail forecourt offerings in the industry are not on par with those of other
countries on the continent. Once deregulation happens the price of PMS will
probably increase. When this happens,
the consumer will naturally request more value for money. When we pay more, we
typically want more. To satisfy the consumers demand, industry players must
guarantee the quality, quantity, and excellent customer service in a safe and
secure environment.” He continued. He further highlighted key challenges
facing the manufacturing industry that supports the Oil & gas industry, including
reliance on import of critical raw materials, inflation and currency devaluation,
as well as industry skills shortage arising from skilled Nigerians moving
overseas. He reiterated that investment done by the Oil & gas industry in
upskilling existing manpower will contribute to build in-country people skills
summit’s agenda of sensitizing and enlightening stakeholders about NCDMB’s
capacity intervention programmes in support of Nigerian Content Development in
the Mid and Downstream sectors is commendable.

OVH Energy Marketing Partners NGO to curb the spread of Malaria
In commemoration of the 2022 World Malaria Day, OVH Energy
Marketing, the leading indigenous marketer of choice, has partnered with the
African Clean-up initiative, a non-profit advocacy organisation, for another
edition of the Roll Back Malaria campaign. The campaign marked under the theme
"Harness innovation to reduce the malaria disease burden and save
lives" empowered local communities within Lagos and Rivers state.
The Roll Back Malaria campaign is a partnership program
conceived and implemented out of the need to educate people on Malaria
preventive measures. The initiative seeks to identify and eradicate the
associated effects of Malaria through education, empowerment, and treatment.
Beneficiaries were enlightened on preventive measures and practical steps to
prevent malaria outbreaks. Insecticide-treated mosquito nets were also
distributed to men, women and children from the host communities.
World Malaria Day is marked annually to focus global attention
on Malaria, and its impact on families, communities, and societal development,
especially in Sub-Saharan Africa. According to the 2021 World Malaria Report by
the World Health organisation, the African Region carries a disproportionately
high share of the global malaria burden. In 2020, Africa was home to 95% of
malaria cases and 96% of malaria deaths, with children under 5 accounting for
about 80% of all malaria deaths.
Speaking on the impact of the initiative, the Chief
Executive Officer of OVH Energy Marketing, Huub Stokman reiterated the
company's commitment to malaria prevention and control to build a healthy and
conducive environment for members of its host communities. He mentioned that
Malaria remains a significant public health and development challenge that
requires collective human efforts and technological innovation to manage.
"The WHO has warned that malaria deaths will probably
dwarf direct deaths from COVID-19 in sub-Saharan Africa. Malaria also poses a
socio-economic challenge; sadly, it remains a burden costing the continent an
estimated $12 billion yearly. Therefore, the fight against Malaria is a
critical issue requiring strong private sector engagement. At OVH Energy, we
are deeply committed to eradicating this disease amongst Nigerians while
improving our host communities' social and economic development in alignment
with United Nation's Sustainable Development Goal three, which is good health
and well-being." He said.
Also commenting on the initiative, Alexander Akhigbe,
founder of the African Cleanup Initiative (ACI) said, "Malaria
is a preventable and treatable disease that continues to affect the health and
livelihood of people worldwide. Thus, when individuals are properly educated,
the spread can be prevented, and with the right treatment, the mortality rate
OVH Energy's commitment to enriching its host community is
commendable. Through various corporate social responsibility initiatives such
as the University Scholarship Scheme, OLEUM Academy, amongst others, the firm
continues to impact the lives of those within its host communities.
