Abuja - The United States Government has pledged its readiness to work with the new Management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC in achieving the Federal Government’s reform agenda in the oil and gas industry.

Speaking on Thursday during a courtesy call on the Group Managing Director, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu at the Corporate Headquarters of the NNPC in Abuja, the USA Ambassador to Nigeria, Ambassador James Entwistle said the United States is willing to provide all necessary support to the new NNPC Management to realize its set goals and objectives.

Amb. Entwistle noted that though the job of the GMD of NNPC is about the most challenging job in Nigeria, the USA is convinced that Dr. Kachikwu has the skills, training and requisite experience to lead the oil and gas industry in Nigeria towards the path of growth and sustainable development.

"My mission is to re-direct and re-energize the work force for greater value addition and I believe that the NNPC, given the right leadership has what it takes to achieve this objective,’’ he said.
