The Managing Director of Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) of Nigeria, Mr. Osagie Okunbor has called for a multilateral approach towards an efficient oil and gas sector in Nigeria.

Okunbor made the call on Thursday in Abuja, at the “Society of Petroleum Engineers, Oloibiri Lecture Series and Energy Forum” organised by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).

The Shell MD represented by Mr Sam Ezugworie, General Manager, Development, Shell, said there was a need for partnership between the government, industry and academia for an efficient oil sector.

According to Okunbor, the oil and gas sector also needs to focus on human capital development and embrace digital transformation to heighten production and minimise intruders’ interference.

“For us to achieve portfolio optimisation, some strategic imperative needs to begin to get into the mix because we need to look at our environmental factors and energy kind.

“The high margin of our operations will have to be replaced by low cost observations. We will then have to look at our physical considerations.

“The physical considerations are something that is at the deep of being actualized through the PIB and having a favourable PIB is also foundational and key to achieving professional excellence.

“If you look at professional excellence in action, I will like to reference the business transformation and operational excellence world summit that carried out research across 86 industry sessions all over the world.

“It might be interesting to see that on the top eight leading companies in operational excellence across the world, not even one of them is in the oil and gas sector.

“This calls for every one of us to pause and begin to reflect; if you are not in the top eight, are you in the game at all? We are not,” Okunbor said.

The Shell MD noted that the likes of Amazon, Toyota, Google and Apple now top leading companies in the world going by their balance sheets.

This, he said, was a clear indication that oil and gas could go into extinction if nothing urgent was done.

Okunbor added that the industry players must have organizational cultural shift from what used to be obtained, so as to make the oil sector one of the top business sectors in the world.

He said “We are used to doing some things in the past thinking that what brought us to point A is capable of bringing us to point B.

“The world has taught us a lesson, either from COVID, from the low oil price, and from all the responses that the world economy has put in place, that indeed what we did is insufficient.

“One may also be thinking that investors will not be able to put money in our business anymore rather, they will go to the cloud computing or something else.

“So, we need to begin to do things differently and if you ask me, what do we need to think about, we need to benchmark ourselves against other parts of the industry.

“We have to shift from looking at ourselves as being oil and gas and a special people because we are no longer special.

“We need to think and reflect that the whole world and businessmen and women all over the world, will like to put their money where they will get the best reward.

“The first and the visible thing we need to do is leadership action; every leader in the industry will have to challenge him or herself to a point where we begin to reject our current position and say that we need to do things differently.”

JAKARTA, INDONESIA - Media OutReach - 13 April 2021 - ECOVACS ROBOTICS, the world's leading home service robotics maker, today launched the DEEBOT T9, the first models with intelligent 9-in-1 obstacle avoidance robotic vacuum cleaner that combines powerful vacuuming and mopping functions with a built-in mobile air freshener. The upgraded DEEBOT T9 with these cutting-edge features is more powerful and smarter than ever before.

"We keep a close eye on market demand and there was a clear indication that consumers want smart products that make homecare even simpler, doing as much and as thorough as they can, in one go. ECOVACS is committed to giving consumers the latest in smart and unique cleaning experience," said David Qian, Chief Executive Officer of ECOVACS ROBOTICS. "We've introduced our new-generation technologies, combined with multiple features while adding even more to our DEEBOT T9 to make sure every inch and floor surface is covered. Our Best DEEBOT Just Got Better."

Upgraded ECOVACS HOME App with Improved Obstacle Avoidance and Navigation Technology

TrueDetect 3D 2.0 technology comes with an upgraded algorithm to quickly detect different types of obstacles and strategically avoid them. The DEEBOT T9 can detect object sizes right down to mere millimeters, which is ten times more accurate than products using traditional infra-red technology, with a detection range of 70-350 millimeters. Moreover, DEEBOT T9 can navigate smoothly in different indoor environments and lighting conditions without any interruptions, even in total darkness. TrueDetect 3D 2.0 technology allows the robotic vacuum cleaner to avoid collisions, entanglements, or disruptions, so users do not have to monitor the robot and clean it continuously.

Combining TrueDetect 3D 2.0 and TrueMapping 2.0 with 3D Maps brings a whole new level of automated cleaning efficiency and flexibility for users. They can quickly locate the robotic vacuum cleaner's exact position via the 2D and 3D Maps. They can also manage their entire cleaning task on-the-fly, by toggling between the 2D and 3D Maps with the upgraded ECOVACS HOME App.

The new ECOVACS HOME App is designed for intuitive use, enhancing the user experience and reinforces the ECOVACS branding. The App is easy to navigate, offering users an optimal cleaning route. The interface integrates all the common features so that users can access critical functions easily. They can customize the amount of water used, suction power, cleaning times, and routes for different rooms.

A Luxurious Cleaning Experience with Built-in Air Freshener

The DEEBOT T9 is the first in the industry to clean floors and freshen the air at the same time. Connected to the DEEBOT's mobile system, the air freshener gives users a vacuuming and fragrance experience that goes beyond traditional cleaning.

The air freshener's unique design releases the fragrance onto the floor directly to remove musty and pet odors, while the fan at the bottom of the air freshener unit spreads the fragrance evenly.

The air freshener uses replaceable capsules, that can last up to 60 days, featuring three kinds of fragrances. Users can choose to switch the air freshener on or off using the ECOVACS HOME App, and extend its lifespan.

Powerful In-depth Cleaning Performance with OZMO Pro 2.0 and Auto-Empty Station Compatibility

The DEEBOT T9 comes with latest OZMO™ Pro 2.0 Electric Oscillating Mopping System with a newly designed motor and movement structure that minimizes noise.

The enhanced suction power of 3000 Pa also raises the bar in cleaning performance. The high-strength fiberglass structure keeps the suction power consistent when vacuuming both hard floors and carpets. The high-frequency vibration of up to 480 times per minute increases the mopping performance, making it comparable to an electric mop.

The DEEBOT T9 uses a disposable mopping pad that can be safely discarded immediately after cleaning. The specially-designed microfibers absorb water evenly, efficiently capture dust, and reduce residual water stains. The composite structure increases friction between the mopping pad and the floor and helps the OZMO™ Pro 2.0 Electric Oscillating Mopping System effectively remove stubborn stains on the floor.

A power-up kit is available for the DEEBOT T9 that further enhances the cleaning performance and user experience. The Auto-Empty Station, which clears the robot's dustbin automatically after cleaning with minimal human intervention, is also compatible with DEEBOT T9.

Pricing and Availability

DEEBOT T9's suggested retail price is IDR 8.29 Million. It will be officially available at Shopee with special price of IDR 8.09 Million and comes with a IDR 200K discounted voucher and a free giftpack on April 17 to 18 ECOVACS X Shopee Brand Day.

It is also available at Lazada, Tokopedia, and Blibli from April 19 onwards with an IDR 200K discounted voucher and free giftpack as launch promotion until April 22.
