Nigerian Petroleum Sector Hold Memorial Service For Barkindo

A memorial service for the late Dr. Mohammed Barkindo, the Secretary-General of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, was organized by the Nigerian petroleum sector on Wednesday in Abuja.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Barkindo passed away on Tuesday in Abuja at the age of 63.

As per Islamic custom, he was interred on Wednesday in Yola, Adamawa State.

The demise of Barkindo was a shock to the business. Mr. Mele Kyari, the Group Managing Director of Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd., remarked during the ceremony that was held in conjunction with the 2022 Nigeria Oil and Gas (NOG) Award.

Mr. Adetunji Adeyemi, the Group Executive Director, Downstream, NNPC, spoke on behalf of Kyari, who prayed to God to give the family the strength to endure the loss.

The loss, according to Mr. Mike Sangster, Managing Director of TotalEnergies EP Nigeria Ltd., was felt by the family, the nation of Nigeria, the oil and gas business, and the entire world.

Sangster, who was represented by Mr. Charles Ebereonwu, the Country Communications Manager for TotalEnergies Nigeria, hailed Barkindo as a modest and devout guy who gave a great deal to the oil and gas sector.

All we can do, he continued, is pray for the family’s strength to deal with the loss and for Almighty God to grant the man’s soul eternal peace.

Additionally, Mr. Rick Kennedy, the head of the Oil Producers Trade Section (OPTS), called Barkindo a true industry behemoth.

The late global energy leader’s accomplishments, according to Kennedy, cannot be overstated, and his passing was a major loss to the industry.

According to Mr. Osagie Okunbor, the Country Chair of Shell Companies in Nigeria, Barkindo was a legendary figure in the oil and gas sector whose passing shocked everyone who was involved.

OPEC was able to overcome numerous crises, according to Okunbor, who also noted that he represented Nigeria and Nigerians with pride on a worldwide scale.

Barkindo was a role model and someone to be appreciated, according to Mr. Simbi Wabote, executive secretary of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board, in his tribute.

“He was our time’s icon. Nigeria has suffered greatly from his passing. God is the wisest. There is nothing we can do once our time has passed.

Wabote remarked, “He has played his part, and we can only carry on from where he stopped.
