The African Energy Chamber is asking all stakeholders to put the safety of oil laborers and the capacity of oil organizations to keep working at the highest point of industry needs.
A few charter flights with oil industry personnel and clinical gear’s have been permitted to land a couple of oil-producing countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Angola, Equatorial Guinea and others, permitting a genuinely necessary pivot of oil sector laborers.
The African Energy Chamber believes that such charter flight operations diven by global oil organizations, for example, ExxonMobil in Equatorial Guinea must be extended over all oil-producing states and governments ought to promptly encourage these developments.
Upon appearance in oil urban communities, all personnel on board will go under obligatory isolate. This is in full consistence with the Advisory Guidelines for the Management and Safety of Oil Workers issued by the African Energy Chamber.
As a result of sustained lockdowns and travel limitations all around, oil laborers have been compelled to remain on site a bit more longer and work additional hours, expanding the danger of lost time injury across oil industry activities.
Oil laborers should have the option to turn securely all through the work destinations, and fields should be kept up and worked by sound and rested staff. Producing countries are to work with oil and air organizations to hold fast to the Chamber’s Advisory Guidelines and guarantee a sheltered development of oil division staff over the continent.
It is proposed that, few extra unique flights ought to be sorted out all through African oil producing countries. There is also a space for business carriers to work exceptional sanction trips between key oil countries, for example, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Congo, South Sudan, Angola, Ghana and Nigeria on an every other month basis in which oil organizations could book seats for their staff.
Without such development occurring, producing across African oil and gas fields could be significantly affected and the security of laborers could place in peril.
The African oil segment has just been ruthlessly hit by Covid-19 and the oil value crash.
