We Won’t Tolerate Compromise On Safety, DPR Tells Tank Farm Operators

The Department of Petroleum Resource (DPR) says it will not allow its safety strategy to be compromised by tank farms operators in the country. The Zonal Operations Controller, Port Harcourt zone, Mr Bassey Nkanga made this known on Tuesday in Port Harcourt.

Nkanga is currently undertaking a tour of tank farms as recommended and initiated by the ad hoc committee on relocation of tank farms from residential areas. He assured that the DPR would continue to make progressive improvement on its operational guidelines.

“DPR will continue to improve; we talk safety and safety is our watchword, the oil and gas industry knows that our vision on safety cannot be compromised. “But in the event of lapses, we allow room for correction until required compliance level is met in terms of minimal safety requirements,” he said.
