NNPC says gas pipeline explosion has not affected supply


The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said on Friday the supply of gas had not been affected by an explosion the previous day on the Escarvos-Lagos Pipeline.

The Escarvos-Lagos Pipeline was hit by an explosion in the Warri region of Delta state, NNPC said on Thursday.

The pipeline supplies gas to plants producing about one-sixth of Nigeria’s power, as well as the West Africa Gas Pipeline System.
