With activities ranging from electricity generation, road construction and repairs to water supply as well as building and furnishing of schools, Nigeria LNG Limited has made the concept of good neighbourliness come alive in its host communities. It has constructed ultramodern health centres, provided hospital equipment, and, in some cases, also installed electricity transformers. It has built several kilometres of roads, several schools and primary health centres in several communities in Rivers State and promoted social interaction among communities. These are in addition to health awareness campaigns, engagement sessions, sponsorship of immunization campaigns, renovation of schools and town halls, sinking of water boreholes, and provision of school desks and writing materials in host and pipeline communities.
Bonny Utility Company (BUC)
Bonny Utility Company manages the provision of utilities – power and water – on Bonny Island. BUC activities are funded by the Joint Industry Companies (JIC), comprising NLNG, SPDC and Exxon Mobil with a contribution ratio of 50:30:20 respectively.
BUC has consistently provided power to residents of Bonny Island with an average availability of over 95%. A total of 10,416 homes are powered through the BUC grid, with an operational prepayment system.
In 2012, a four hundred thousand (400,000) litre capacity overhead water storage tank was commissioned. The new storage tank was funded by JIC to replace the existing overhead storage tank at the BUC Bonny Water Treatment Plant which was heavily corroded.
