The CEOs endorsed the programmes during their quarterly meeting with the Executive Secretary of NCDMB, Ernest Nwapa held last Tuesday at the Board's headquarters in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
Nwapa warned that unless the IOCs patronize local service companies and help them build capacity with which to execute jobs in Nigeria and employ the citizenry, they will continue to put pressure on international operating companies to employ them.
He regretted that most operating companies judge their Nigerian Content performance by the volume of contracts they award to Nigerian entities whereas most of such jobs get executed abroad and with tools leased from foreign companies, thereby exporting most of the spend.
He also rued the low patronage of indigenous marine vessels by the international operating companies, noting that the industry spends approximately $4bn annually, but nearly 80 per cent of the spend end up abroad.
The industry, she said, should commit to the Vessel Replacement Strategy developed by the Board, which will see Nigerians owned Anchor Handling Tug Supply (AHTS) and Platform Supply Vessels (PSV) replace foreign owned vessels.
To ensure the success of the Offshore Rigs Acquisition Strategy, Equipment Components Manufacturing Requirements and Establishment of Line Pipe mills, Nwapa challenged the industry to "take steps that demonstrate that we are going to get to the expected target in 2015.
Nwapa said the Proposed Engagement Model with Ministries and Departments will help address policy inconsistencies and common issues impacting implementation of Local Content in the Oil and Gas Industry.

Mr. Ernest Nwapa, general manager, Capacity Building Nigerian Content Division, NNPC believes that there is much that need to be done to build capacity.
What we need to do, he said, is to get the policy right, work out strategies to assist local underwriting (companies to acquire technical expertise.
He said: "To achieve the aggressive target set by government, a structured implementation framework is imperative to build strong team, develop charter and operational frame work, building industry wide collaboration; gather data and develop policy, procedures and processes, rollout guideline for industry compliance, identify capacity gaps, design and implement capacity measures, develop critical enablers for measurement and monitoring, promote investment in key facilities and infrastructure," he said.

Ernest Nwapa, an engineer and General Manager, National Content Department (NCD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), said operators like NIMASA, the major government agency empowered to implement Cabotage, seem not to consider the importance of requisite government bodies to the implementation of the Act. Nwapa stated that the Cabotage Act will remain hamstrung, except NIMASA comes to the understanding that these agencies must be mainstream into the policy. NIMASA, he said, must encourage partnership with agencies such as NNPC, International Oil Companies (IOC) and security agencies, for visible loopholes to be blocked. "There must be linkages with other sectors. Any partnership to make Cabotage work must be encouraged," he said. Commenting on one of the provisions of the Act that requires that vessels operating in Nigerian waters must be built in the country, Nwapa said that it is almost impossible because, as things stand, there is dearth of capacity building in the sector. "How can ships be built when Nigeria does not have a working steel rolling mill?," he queried.
