FROM OLOIBIRI TO BONNY BY GODSWILL S. IHETU (SC)
This book captures a bit of the early history of the oil and gas industry. My first visit to Oloibiri was in 1959 the same year I joined Shell-BP as a trainee technician. Remember Nigeria first export of oil was from the Oloibiri oil field in 1958 after commercial discovery in 1956.
During my career in the industry I had lived in Bonny for six months, and in later years, led major projects in Bonny;7 construction of New Finima Town in Bonny LGA, and also participated in the relocation of the villagers from old Finima to the New Town to make way for the LNG plant and Residential Area.
