Esso Exploration and Production Nigeria Limited (EEPNL), in contract sharing with Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), and Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company (SNEPCO) has awarded international post-graduate scholarships to 13 Nigerian students.
The 13 beneficiaries have already secured admission to study different engineering-related courses in various universities abroad. The scholarship awards cover full payment for tuition, accommodation and other fees as specified by the respective institutions, as well as provisions for personal upkeep.
EEPNL awards these scholarships annually to help young and brilliant Nigerians further develop themselves academically, in order to boost the pool of qualified manpower for career opportunities in the country’s Oil and Gas industry.
Speaking at the award presentation ceremony, which held in Lagos recently, Mr. Udom Inoyo, Executive Director, Mobil Producing Nigeria, advised the successful students to put more efforts into the pursuit of their professional careers. “You have done well to come this far. But now, you must go even further. You must see yourselves as ambassadors of Nigeria and, above all, you must come back to make contributions to national development,” he told the students.
In her remarks, Mrs. Iyabo Ayobami-Ojo, Deputy Manager, National Petroleum Investments Management Services (NAPIMS), while addressing the students, said, “We at NAPIMS have identified EEPNL’s scholarship award as impactful if you desire higher growth in life. My charge to you is that you should go there, work hard and be good ambassadors to ExxonMobil, to your parents and to your country, Nigeria.”
