Outgoing managing director and chief executive officer of NLNG, Babs Omotowa, has been appointed by Shell International into the Global Upstream Leadership Team as vice president (S&E).
Omotowa, after completing his time at the helm of affairs at NLNG on September 1, 2016, would report to the upstream director across Shell’s conventional, unconventional and deepwater global businesses.
Omotowa would hand over to the incoming chief executive, Tony Attah, who would be engaged in an on-boarding programme until September 1 when he would effectively take over.
Omotowa would leave the Nigeria LNG Limited in a stronger position and well positioned for the next chapter of the company’s growth.
He would take great satisfaction in his numerous achievements, including consolidating the company’s position as a reliable supplier of LNG and major player in the global LNG market, restarting the Train 7 expansion programme and making the NLNG ranked as the number one homegrown company in Nigeria.
During his tenure at the Nigeria LNG Limited, the company earned in excess of $40bn in revenue and returned over $22bn to Nigeria in dividend, taxes, feed gas purchases, etc.
The company, under his watch, became the highest corporate tax paying organisation in Sub-Sahara Africa and a major contributor to the Nigerian economy.
