Gas Infrastructure:OB3 Pipeline For Completion Next Quarter – NNPCL


The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC Ltd) has said that the Obiafu-Obrikom-Oben (OB3) Gas Pipeline, would now be completed next quarter.

The executive vice president, Upstream, Oritsemeyiwa Eyesan, disclosed this at the ongoing Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), on Tuesday in Houston, Texas, United States of America.

This is as the national oil company said it will continue to invest in the development of huge oil and gas infrastructure to make it easy for operators and prospective investors to carry out their business in Nigeria.

Speaking at one of the panel sessions of a luncheon organised by the Petroleum Technology Association of Nigeria (PETAN), with the theme: Sustainable Energy.

Solutions for Africa’s Future (Nigerian Perspective)”, the Eyesan stated that NNPC Ltd.’s objective was to ensure that there is a healthy balance of energy sources in the country.

She explained that though the oil and gas sector is not where it ought to be, much progress had been made between last year’s edition of the OTC in terms of opening up the sector for investments and infrastructural development.

While she identified funding as the major challenge impeding the development of the sector, she listed some of the bright spots in the industry to include the Executive Orders signed by the President to open up the sector, the imminent resolution of the assets divestment by the International Oil Companies, and the aggressive execution of gas infrastructure projects such as the Obiafu-Obrikom-Oben (OB3) Gas Pipeline, which she said would be completed in the next quarter.
