Power Generation Drops as Seplat Petroleum Shuts Down Oben Gas Plant
Electricity generation in the country has dropped and this is due to the shutting down of Seplat Petroleum Development Company Plc Oben Gas Plant.
The Seplat Petroleum Development Company Plc Oben Gas Plant is a joint venture between the company and the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC), a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
Mr. Austin Avuru, the Chief Executive Officer of Seplat Petroleum, operators of NPDC/Seplat Joint Venture, on Tuesday in a statement, said the shutdown will enable the company to tie in its newly installed, 2 x 75 mmscf/d unit into the company’s existing gas plant and will end on the 5th of March.
He also added that this achievement aligns with Seplat’s short to medium term domestic gas commercialisation strategy, while facilitating greater power generation in the country.
