Nestoil gets ISO 9001:2008 certification for Quality Management System
DQS Holding, one of the world’s leading certification bodies, has rewarded Nestoil Limited with International Standard Organization (ISO) 9001:2008 certification for Quality Management System (QMS). This certification, which came after a detailed evaluation of the company’s operational processes and standards, is a valid testament to Nestoil’s capacity to deliver quality services that conform to customers’ needs and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
With this certification, Nestoil Limited has again affirmed it’s positioning as Nigeria’s foremost Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (EPCC) Service Company. As the indigenous leader in pipeline construction, the certification serves as a tacit endorsement of indigenous expertise which has been supporting the operations of International Oil Companies (IOCs) operating in Nigeria since the activation of the Local Content Act.
Specifically, the ISO 9001:2008 standard helps organizations develop a Quality Management System (QMS) that ensures they meet customers’ quality requirements while continually improving their operational processes. Therefore, organizations with ISO 9001:2008 certification have completely complied with the necessary requirements and demonstrated consistent ability to provide products that meet customer requirements as well as enhance satisfaction through effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system.
Over the past two decades, Nestoil Limited has proven the quality of its services through execution of technically complex projects for clients in the oil, gas and energy sectors of the nation’s economy. Some the landmark projects include construction of the Edjeba Sewage Treatment Plan in Warri, construction of the OB3 (Obiafu/Obrikom to Oben) 48” diameter gas pipeline for the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), construction of the 24” diameter Nember-Cawthorne Channel Trunkline (NCTL) for Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC), construction and installation of the 2.5km Escravos River Cross as part of the OML 42 oil export pipeline network construction for the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC).
Earlier, the company’s Group Chief Operating Officer (GCOO), Dr. Chukwueloka Umeh described the company’s certification by DQS Holding as “an encouraging achievement that will help Nestoil and its sister companies, B&Q Dredging Limited and IMPaC Engineering Ltd, that also attained this feat remain true to professionalism and operational integrity which are the ideals of the Obijackson Group”.
