NNPC E&P, NOSL Celebrate New Milestones With 3rd Annual Spud Baby Ceremony

Just as the birth of a child symbolises the beginning of a new chapter for a family, the spudding of a well represents the start of a transformative journey for an oil exploration drilling project.

On 28th May 2024, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Exploration and Production Ltd. (NNPC E&P Ltd.) and Natural Oilfield Services Ltd. (NOSL) organised the third annual Spud Baby event at the Royalty Hotels in Eket, Akwa Ibom State. This occasion serves to honour the babies born when the company started spudding oil.

The Spud Baby initiative celebrates these children, born during periods of significant operational milestones, as symbols of new beginnings and prosperity for both their families and the company. This year, 65 children from Mkpat Enin LGA, Eastern Obolo LGA, and Onna LGA, Akwa Ibom State, were honoured for their special connection to the company’s achievements.

The event welcomed proud parents, company officials, and esteemed guests, including HRH Ubom Elder Harry John Etetor, the Paramount Ruler of Eastern Obolo LGA; HRH Etebom Etebom Itiat Udo Hundang, Clan Head of Asuna Nung Oku; HRH Moses Udosen Ukpong, Clan Head of Ikpa Ibom in Mkpat Enin LGA; Chief Joshua M. Ayaguong, Village Head of Emeroke II, Eastern Obolo LGA; Mr. Levi Levi, Executive of Eastern Obolo LGA; Mrs. Atim A. Ulo, Director of Primary Health Care in Mkpat Enin LGA, and Mrs. Magaret A. Effiong, Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Welfare, Uyo.

HRH Ubom Elder Harry John Etetor, the Paramount Ruler of Eastern Obolo LGA, expressed gratitude for the initiative on behalf of the beneficiaries, acknowledging its positive impact on the community.

Recognising that children represent the promise of tomorrow, Mrs. Magaret A. Effiong from the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Welfare said, “Let us, as women, embrace our roles as caretakers of these children and utilise the support provided.”

In reaffirming their commitment to recognising and supporting the newest generation born during these significant moments, NNPC E&P Ltd. and NOSL continue to foster a legacy of growth, innovation, and positive change.
