The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, PENGASSAN, directed all its members to shut operations and activities in the nation’s oil rigs and export facilities from midnight, Sunday over the detention of 21 offshore members by Rivers State security agents.


The leadership of PENGASSAN said in a statement, “By midnight Sunday 19th April 2020, all Export facilities will stop operation as well as suspension of Production & Maintenance Services Reports.

“By 12 noon on Monday 20th April all our members will withdraw all forms of services relating to crude oil production, refining, distribution and supplies.”

Following the arrest of 21 PENGASSAN members and the Chief Security Officer in Rivers State on Thursday, the association on Friday threatened to withdraw oil workers in all rigs and export facilities
