Supply of gas on pipeline affected by fire now restored by NNPC

Hopes of renewed steady supply of electricity across the federation have risen as the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) says it has fully restored the supply of gas on a pipeline affected by a fire last week.

Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Ndu Ughamadu, said on Monday, revealing that “Gas supply to several power stations was cut off because of the fire on the Escravos-Lagos Pipeline System near Okada in the southern state of Edo on Wednesday last week”.

Business Hilights recalls NNPC owns and operates the gas pipelines which feed power plants in the country’s southwest.
