Evangelist Naranie Albert Karibo has reiterated the significant of Oloibiri Oil and Gas Field discovery in Nigeria.
According to him, it is the first oil and gas industry in Nigeria with commercial quantity.
Not only that, it is also Nigeria’s first crude oil export from Oloibiri in 1958 initially at the rate of 5, 000 barrels per day. And of course, it is the first crude oil pipeline in Nigeria from Oloibiri oil Well to Port-Harcourt at Kugbo location to Bonny River Terminal.
Therefore, he said, this development of oil and gas industry in Nigeria will be incomplete without the mention of Oloibiri Well where it all started.
With this , Evangelist Karibo said that it has become imperative for them to establish the National Oil and Gas Discovery Day celebration and Thanksgiving by Ministries of God after much prayers which is aimed at bringing development to the Oloibiri area in Ogbia Local Government of Bayelsa state.
The next celebration comes up in January 15, 2020 at the oil Well 1, Otuabagi in Oloibiri district.
Prominent sons and daughters, Royal Fathers of the Niger Delta
region including distinguished guests of the nation are invited to attend the epoch making event.
The event is also to create awareness for the younger generation to note the place of Oloibir in the history of Nigeria’s oil industry.
