Fort he project, which lasted from November 2007 to 2010, SGS Nigeria mobilized qualified personnel and the equipment required to successfully complete the project, without any Lost Time Incidents (LTI). Furthermore, successful execution of the NGC Alaoji NDT Services project, again without LTI was also taken into consideration for the award nomination.

"I was delighted my division was nominated for this award. For our efforts to be recognized by a prestigious Nigeria EPIC Engineering company such as Nestoil and Gas can only been seen as a major accolade to the management and staff of SGS Nigeria. However, my main praise goes to all the SGS employees who were involved on the various projects, as this award must be seen as a major achievement by all of them and not only the company,” said Chris Woolley, Business Manager, SGS Industrial Services.
