The ad-hoc committee recently set by the House of Representatives to probe the loss of crude oil worth over 21 billion dollars and huge debts being owed indigenous companies by International Oil Companies, IOCs commenced legislative business on the issues today.
Speaking at the inaugural meeting, Chairman of the ad-hoc committee, Rep Daniel Reyenieju, PDP, Warri Federal Constituency, Delta State said they are expected to investigate the operations of the deep offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contracts Act, as it concerns the NNPC and IOCs towards determining the reasons for the loss of 21 billion dollars.
The committee will also enquire why appropriate steps were not taken, promptly and over an inordinately long period to remedy the situation which led to the loss and possibly recover the revenue.
He said the second referral is to investigate the huge debts being owed local companies and indigenous contractors by IOCs and gas companies with the view to ensuring that such debts are paid promptly.
