NNPC Says Ikeja Gas Pipeline Leakage Was Caused By Road Construction

NNPC Says Ikeja Gas Pipeline Leakage Was Caused By Road Construction.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Ltd. has claimed that road building and repair works in the vicinity caused gas pipeline leaking near Anifowoshe, Ikeja Underbridge, in Lagos.

In a statement published in Lagos, Mr. Garba Muhammad, Group General Manager, NNPC Group Public Affairs Division, confirmed the news.

The gas pipeline that had been discovered leaking in the early hours of the morning had been segregated, and the surrounding area had been roped off, according to Muhammad.

He asked locals in the area not to be alarmed, saying that all required safety precautions had been taken to prevent the problem from worsening.

According to Muhammad, NNPC’s maintenance engineers were working with the Gaslink team on the ground to guarantee that gas supply services to the areas affected by the event were restored within 48 hours.

He said:” Preliminary findings indicate that at about 8.40 a.m. on Wednesday, a pipeline gas leakage was reported around Anifowoshe, Ikeja Underbridge, Lagos State.

“The pipeline is a six-inch gas pipeline supplying gas to Mainland Power Ltd, near Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja.

“The NNPC immediately moved in by engaging Gaslink Ltd, its franchise partner operating the pipeline, mobilised to the location, cordoned off the area and successfully isolated the gas pipeline at Oba Akran Valve pit. ”

In a statement, Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, Acting Zonal Coordinator, NEMA’s South-West Zonal Office, warned people in the area to exercise extreme caution till the leakage was kept in check.
