Miss Ajoke attributed her high flyer performance to God and the support she got from Agbami Coventurers through AMEPS. In her words at the convocation ceremony, “I am grateful to Agbami Co-venturers for the scholarship.”

Lanre Kalejaiye, Acting Director, Star Deep Water Petroleum Limited, expressed the Co-venturers’s delight with the   impact of AMEPS.  “We congratulate all the beneficiaries of the Agbami Medical and Engineering Professional Scholarship in the University of Lagos. We   especially commend the 32 who graduated with First Class Degrees. They are all valuable ambassadors of AMEPS.”  He said.

AMEPS is a merit-based scholarship scheme which was established in 2009 and administered by the Agbami Co-venturers to bridge the gap in the nations’ supply of Engineering and Medical professionals.

From its inception to date, over N7.5 billion has been spent on AMEPS with over 15,000 young Nigerian beneficiaries. Three hundred and ten (310) of them have graduated with First Class honours. As at the end of 2016, over 9,000 of the beneficiaries have graduated from the scheme, while a total of 6,500 are currently on the scheme.

The Agbami Co-Venturers have also provided strategic support to the development of education by donating 26 fully equipped Science Laboratory complexes, plus six hybrid and two conventional libraries to schools across the country.

The Agbami Field is located approximately 70 miles (113 kilometers) offshore Nigeria, and in line with the Deep Offshore Community Affairs Group (DOCAG) engagement principles, co-venturers view the entire country of Nigeria  as Agbami community.

The Agbami Field is currently the single largest oil field in deepwater West Africa. It commenced production in July 2008. At peak production, the Agbami project contributes 250,000 barrels of oil per day to Nigeria’s total oil production.
