President Tinubu to inaugurate 3 critical infrastructure projects in Imo, Delta – NNPC Ltd


The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC Ltd), yesterday said that President Bola Tinubu will inaugurate three critical infrastructure projects in Imo and Delta states on Wednesday.

This was contained in a post Tuesday on the X page of NNPC Ltd.

It said: “In line with our mandate to ensure energy sufficiency, NNPC Ltd invites the public to the Presidential Commissioning of three (3) Critical Gas Infrastructure Projects. The 300MMscf/d ANOH Gas Processing Plant in Assa North-Ohaji South Field in Imo State. The 23.3km, 36-inch Gas Pipeline from the Assa North-Ohaji South (ANOH) Primary Treatment Facility to the OB3 Custody Transfer Metering Station in Rivers State. The 200MMscf/d AHL Gas Processing Plant 2 in Kwale, Delta State.

“The ceremony will be performed by His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu (GCFR), Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

Meanwhile, the Secretary-General of the African Petroleum Producers Organisation (APPO), Omar Farouk Ibrahim, has said that nearly 75% of oil produced in Africa is exported to other continents for energy consumption.

Speaking at the Mozambique Energy and Industry Summit, the Secretary-General also said about 40% of the gas produced daily on the continent ends up in countries in Europe and America.

He said that oil and gas are treated as export commodities from the moment they are discovered on the continent, noting that it is why the largest proportion of the African population continues to live in energy poverty, because the continent focuses only on exporting oil and gas.

He stated that nearly one billion of Africa’s 1.49 billion population lack access to clean energy for cooking and other domestic uses,  adding that 600 million of the population do not have access to electricity.
