IBILE Oil and Gas Corporation is a Lagos State-owned company established by law in 2013 to invest and engage in energy activities in the upstream, midstream, and downstream sectors of the industry. IBILE recently bagged a number of ISO certifications backing the alignment of its operations with international best practices.
Where the name IBILE is a derived acronym representing the five divisions in the state, including Ikeja, Badagry, Ikorodu, Lagos, and Epe.
Going through the processes for international certifications especially under audits by global auditors like Bureau Veritas, is no child's play.
More so, when an organisation ends up bagging three or more straight certifications at a go.
This is why this recent accomplishment as disclosed by IBILE and Lagos State Government is no mean feat.
According to the reports, the Lagos State-owned oil and gas corporation says it has received certifications in quality management systems, occupational health and safety management systems, and environmental management systems.
The corporation further disclosed that it had the ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, and ISO 45001:2018 certifications.
It reads, “The certifications demonstrate IBILE’s commitment to continually offer high-quality product delivery, trusted service, and responsible operations while ensuring minimal impact on the environment and demonstrating a duty of care to the customers and stakeholders.
“We are committed to ensuring service delivery is done on behalf of Lagos State and in alignment with the agenda of Governor Babajide Olusola’s administration.”
According to the statement, “The ISO certifications—ISO 14001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, and ISO 45001:2018—are a testament to the foundation and structure of IBILE’s quality system and drive to execute excellently.”
When in 2016 it was announced about the discovery of oil in Lagos State in commercial quantity thus confirming Lagos State officially as an oil-producing state, the news came with great excitement.
It is therefore no surprise that IBILE has recently bagged ISO certifications.
