DSS Steps in as Delta Communities Protest Withdrawal of Salvic Petroleum from OML 30



There have been ongoing community protests at Oil Mining Lease (OML) 30, Nigeria’s second largest onshore oil and gas asset, located in the western Niger Delta, about 35km east of Warri in Delta State, compelling the Department of State Services (DSS) to step in to forestall unrest in the area, THISDAY has learnt.

Central to the unrest, according to oil industry sources, is the termination of the third party operator agreement of Salvic Petroleum Resources Limited on April 16.

Investigations revealed that Salvic, a technical services operator, had been acting as the third party operator of OML 30 in the last one year on behalf of the name-plate operator – Heritage Energy Operational Services Ltd (HEOSL).

The Salvic/OML 30 project was led by, but not exclusively, Ikemefuna Okafor, CEO of Salvic, and Ebenezer Ajayi, Executive Director, Operations, among others on the team.
