NNPC Restores Escravos-Lagos Pipeline, Resumes Gas Supply

By Galaxy - 11 days ago

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation ( NNPC ) on Monday said the Escravos-Lagos Pipeline ( ELP ), which got burnt by a fire, had been restored.

A statement in Abuja by the NNPC spokesman, Mr Ndu Ughamadu, said that gas supply to customers on the line, including power generating companies, had resumed.

A section of the ELP at Abakila in Ondo State blew up in flames on January 2 due to bush fire.

The incident affected gas supply to customers in Ondo, Ogun and Lagos states with subsequent shutdown of a number of power plants.

”With the restoration of the ELP and resumption of gas supply, the affected power plants, with a combined generating capacity of 1,143MW, would resume power generation.

”The plants include Egbin in Lagos State; Olorunshogo Power Plant, PEL Olorunshogo and Paras Power Plant in Ogun and Omotosho Plant in Ondo State.

”The 36-inch Escravos to Lagos Pipeline System ( ELPS ) is a natural gas pipeline built in 1989 to supply gas from Escravos in the Niger Delta to various consumption utilisation areas.

It supplies gas to power plants in the South-West and feeds the West African Gas Pipeline System.
