Tension brews in Niger-Delta as workers faults Conoil over delay in crew change



… As workers appeal to DPR, Chevron to prevail
Tension is gradually building up in the Niger-Delta as ConOil  management has refused booking for crew change of its workers onboard its offshore platforms involving both the company’s servicing contractors staff at Ango-field, Auntie Julie, Mr. P and other  locations located in Bayelsa and Ondo  States over prolonged stay onboard and lack of adequate welfare among others.
The workers expressed dismay on the alleged disdain treatment meted on them  onboard, noting that all ConOil is interested in is the crude oil production but not the well being of personnel onboard, hence they do not care about the over stay of workers in their platforms.
Our source revealed that one Mr. Daibo who is the safety Officer of the company, and Mr. Dare who is said to be in charge of booking of chopper (helicopter) conveying workers to and fro are as alleged, not doing their job properly as well as the ConOil management, this the source revealed has led to the workers staying longer onboard for up to 60 days. A situation they described as a modern day slavery of workers in the sector.
The workers are appealing to the Department of Petroleum Resources DPR, Multinational Oil and Gas company giant, Chevron to come to their aid in order to grant them freedom from what they describe as modern day slavery job by ConOil, adding that the company has deprived then from joining  any union.
They are urged all relevant regulation agencies such as NNPC, Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, Chevron  and others to prevail on ConOil to do the needful in order to avert looming crisis in the Oil and Gas industry in the Niger Delta.
