Please give us an insight into what you do at Trexm Oil and Gas Services Nigeria Ltd?
TREXM Oil and Gas Services Nigeria Limited which recently rebranded to TREXM Energy Services Limited is a project-delivery company that provides a range of engineering services such as instrumentation, control and electrical systems integration; metering and measurement solutions; wellhead solutions; and inspection technologies for companies in several industries including the oil and gas, infrastructure, FMCG and power sectors.
We leverage technology, outstanding OEMS (original equipment manufacturers), years of experience, and a dedicated team to provide excellent services to all our clients.
We believe in providing young Nigerians with opportunities to showcase their skills and expertise, to grow, and to add value to the company, our clients, and most importantly the growth and reputation of Africa.
We are committed to building several businesses that showcase the opportunities for growth in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
At the moment, we also have a chemicals business called TREXM Chemicals Nigeria.
You were recently shortlisted as one of the fastest-growing companies in Africa, by the Financial Times, a leading financial news platform in the world. Tell us about it and what impact will it have on your brand?
Being listed by Financial Times as one of the fastest-growing companies in Africa, is a great accomplishment that comes with a huge sense of responsibility. We take pride in this because it shows recognition for our work and provides a stage to showcase our world-class delivery processes and services to clients and our local community.
The biggest impact this recognition has on our brand is making us more committed to continue providing excellent services for our clients. Additionally, this recognition has spurred us to strive for more innovative ways to serve our clients.
What do you attribute to this success, and what are your future growth plans?
The success of TREXM is due to our talents and commitment. We have created a culture that enables every member of our organization to contribute his or her own unique set of skills. We do not run a one man show but a flat management structure; every member of the team contributes to the overall operations of the business.
Additionally, we listen to our client’s needs, place a high value on accountability and learn from mistakes which enables us to improve our processes and quality of work. We are committed to mitigating disruptions in client operations by delivering services through a culture of integrity, quality service and corporate excellence.
We plan to actualise our growth opportunities by improving our sales capabilities, increasing the number of people on our team and enhancing our internal systems. This will allow us to provide customers with end-to-end solutions that will help them increase their profitability.
How do you see the crude oil generation industry evolving in Nigeria over the next few years, and what is Trexm’s strategy for staying ahead of the curve?
In the next few years, I see room for improvement in crude oil generation in Nigeria if the government can provide sufficient financing, optimize existing policies to increase crude oil accounting and transparency, as well as security within the pipelines and on the water-ways, and ensure safer crude oil and petroleum product logistics.
While there’s room for improvement, opportunities for increased production are available in Nigeria.
The government and local and foreign investments have a huge role to play in bringing these opportunities to life. Advancements in technology for drilling and asset integrity management as well as tech-no logical advancement in exploration are also trends that will continue to evolve in the industry.
