Africa’s first Deep­wa­ter Sim­u­la­tion The­ater opens in P/H

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Hamisu Muham­mad

The cel­e­bra­tion of the 4th an­niver­sary of Nige­rian Con­tent Act took off on a re­mark­able note on Mon­day as an indige­nous oil ser­vic­ing com­pany, Tol­mann Al­lied Ser­vices, opened a Deep­wa­ter Sim­u­la­tion Theatre (DST) at its new of­fice com­plex in Port Har­court, Rivers State.

The DST - the first in Africa and third in the world - was con­ceived by Tol­mann Al­lied Ser­vices Com­pany Ltd in re­sponse to the in­creas­ing num­ber of com­pa­nies car­ry­ing out ex­plo­ration ac­tiv­i­ties in the deep off­shore and the need to pre­pare from class­room to in­stal­la­tion to over­come harsh en­vi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions that may arise in such in­dus­try op­er­a­tions.

Com­mis­sion­ing the fa­cil­ity, the Min­is­ter of Petroleum Re­sources, Mrs. Diezani Ali­son-Madueke com­mended Tol­mann Al­lied Ser­vices for in­vest­ing in such an up­scale fa­cil­ity, which ac­cord­ing to her, has fur­ther re­moved doubts about the ca­pac­ity of Nige­ri­ans to own and op­er­ate key as­sets in the oil and gas in­dus­try.
