Evidence of Company's Community Relation Plan
i. Nigeria Gas Company Limited (NGC) Gas Supply to PHCN Power Plant
During the execution of NGC Gas Supply to PHCN Power Plant, Papalanto, Ogun State in 2012. Thirty One (31) host communities namely Itoki, Iloye, Eriko, Afimo, Agoro, Kajola, Lerin-Okepata, Ososun, Baamu, Balogun, Ebiti, Ibokuru, Ejio, Abese, Soderu, Sounmi, Ogunmola, Elegbaata, Ajitaadun, Moshe, Olowofela, Abere-Meta, Ijoko-Lafun, Fenapa, Apena, Lerin-Olorunsogo, Obasa, Molashin, Alhaji and Olorunsogo were related with. Just immediately after paying homage to the traditional rulers of the communities, several meetings followed to foster the required relationship. In the process, we employed skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled labour at different phases of the project. This was facilitated by the three major CLOs employed to interface between the Consortium, JPL/MORPOL and the entire host communities. At the end of the successful completion of the project, six (6) boreholes were constructed across the entire host communities. Attached are some of the pictures of the boreholes construction.
ii. Construction Contract for Carbon Steel Flowlines, Manifold, Bulklines including Fibre Optic Cable (FOC) for SPDC Gbaran -Ubie Phase 2 Project

3. Gbaran Kingdom (Polaku, Koroama, Asain-Gbene, Obunagha, Okolobiri, Ogboloma),

iii. Gas Pipeline from Ob-OB Gas Plant to IEFCL Enquiry No. IEFCL/12/001
During the execution of this project, the following communities in five clusters were cordially related with and benefits of our Social Responsibility were acceptable to these communities. The communities are Cluster 1 (Eleme, Elelenwo, Apajo, Rumuochwurus), Cluster 2 (Atali, Abara, Edegelem, Imeh, Umuechem, Eteche, Chokochoko), Cluster 3 (IPO, Omuanwa, Ozoaha, Omandeme, Ubima, Omerelu, Akanu, Egbeda), Cluster 4 (Awara communities), Cluster 5 (Omoku communities). Required relationship was established with each of these communities and subsequently we employed skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled labours as well as sub-contracting of locally-sourced materials to indigenes, at different phases of the project. This was facilitated by one CLO employed per cluster to interface between MORPOL and the entire host communities.
