NNPC adds 1,505MW of power as it completes repair of damaged gas pipeline

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation on Sunday said that an equivalent of 1,505 Megawatts (MW) of electricity is expected to be re-injected  into the national power generation grid following its completion of repair works on damaged parts of its gas-to-power supply pipeline.

NNPC added  in a statement from its acting Group General Manager, Public Affairs, Dr. Farouk Ibrahim in Abuja that it has completed repair works on the sections of the sabotaged Escravos-Lagos Gas Pipeline network (ELPS).

Ibrahim explained that the repair work  which has ended almost seven months of gas supply outage that was caused by willful hacking of the pipeline in Delta State will now enable it to re-inject almost 200 million cubic feet per day (mmcf/d) of gas into power generation to the grid network.
