Laser Engineering and Resources Consultants Limited sets up Nigerian Content Laboratories for oil and gas

The Executive Secretary of the NCDMB, Engr. Simbo Kesiye Wabote, recently commissioned a block of Quality Control and Assurance Laboratories christened, Nigerian Content Laboratories by Laser Engineering and Resources Consultants Limited. This was done as part of efforts by the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board, (NCDMB), to increase indigenous capacities, capabilities, and competencies in the oil and gas industry.

Speaking at the commissioning, Engr. Wabote praised Laser Engineering for being a reputable indigenous business that provides top-tier services to the oil and gas sector in the areas of reservoir management, pressure-volume-temperature (PVT) and environmental services, well intervention services (Slickline), and research and development services in a way that ensures the satisfaction of customers and stakeholders by adhering to best practices for continuous improvement.

He emphasized that Laser Engineering has left a lasting impression by developing into a resilient firm that makes use of the resources at hand to address intellectual issues in the oil and gas sector.

The NCDMB Chieftain cut the ribbon to declare the Calibration, Molecular & Micro-Biology, Instrumentation, and Chemistry Laboratories of the Nigerian Content Laboratory Complex officially open. There are also libraries, well intervention workshops, crude assay labs, PVT labs, research, development, and incubatory labs in the site.

The Analytical Science Laboratories were developed, according to Prof. Mike Onyekaonwu, Managing Director of Laser Engineering and Resources Consultants Limited, in response to media inquiries, to reverse the trend of over reliance on foreign laboratories. He revealed that a Hydrate loop had been started by the research center to promote improved crude oil recovery in exploration and production operations. In higher institutions, the laboratories are also set up for students to conduct fundamental experiments to improve their hands-on learning.

As the initiative’s only financier, Prof. Onyekaonwu stated that the majority of the laboratory equipment is manufactured domestically to save expenses for institutes of higher learning. He repeatedly emphasized the necessity for the country to build additional laboratories that would address the nation’s idiosyncrasies through invention, research, and development rather than the haste for materialism.

The researcher urged businesspeople to develop their own technology that may be used for problem-solving and warned against becoming overly dependent on the NCDMB. He said that any economy that invests in research grows, and that for Nigerians to develop indigenous technology, they must be resilient.
