About SEPLAT Undergraduate Scholarship
Seplat Petroleum Development Company (SEPLAT) is a Nigerian indigenous oil and gas company listed in both Nigerian and London stock markets.
The partnership of Shebah Petroleum Development Company Limited and Platform Joint Ventures Limited established SEPLAT in July 2009.
The objective was to pursue upstream oil and gas opportunities in Nigeria specifically. And, to create diverse opportunities arising out of the incumbent Major IOC’s portfolios.
Since its first public operation in 2010, Seplat has grown to be a leading indigenous oil and gas operator in Nigeria.
Since its commencement, the company has continually increased its production and reserves every year. It has also consistently increased its profit and revenue every year.
Additionally, Seplat was able to establish itself as a leading supplier of natural gas to Nigerian domestic markets.
They were able to achieve this through substantial investment in the development, commercialization and monetization of gas reserves that exist on its blocks,
Now, to give back to the local communities which they explore, Seplat founded the NPDC scholarship with a focus on the Niger Delta area. The scholarship runs yearly since its inception and continues to date.
