Awaritse Industrial Park is located in Obitugbo community, Koko, Delta State, Nigeria. The industrial park is promoted by Awaritse Nigeria Limited which operates majorly in the oil and gas industry. The park is soon to become an oil and gas free trade zone, as it has been proposed and the process is underway. Also, relevant authorities have been conducting scheduled visits to inspect the progress of the implementation of required standards in the industrial park.
Furthermore, the location of the industrial park serves a strategic purpose, as it provides the absence of congestion currently experienced in the Apapa, Lagos sea port axis.
The facilities included in the industrial park are 135m long jetty which is 12m in width and a draft of 9m with a load capacity of 550tonnes, a dredged slot of 240m in length and 50m in width, twin warehouses, office building for administrative activities, a shipyard which is connected to interlinked roads for cargo traffic. This further increases the profitability and ease of doing business in the industrial park.
AOU Venture Limited is the only construction company that has successfully operated in the industrial park to build petroleum storage facilities and pipeline facilities. This is due to of strategic relationship with the community members, which has been mutually beneficial, by way of creating job opportunities for community members, thus improving their standard of living.
