The pipeline is 50 km long, 24 inches wide and designed to deliver 2.8mn cu/m of gas to the power plant every day, stated officials from Total. The section was completed on 12 January 2015 and was constructed by Total on behalf of the JV between NPC and TEPNG.

Elisabeth Proust, managing director of Total E&P Nigeria, said, “This milestone will help bring to reality, the government’s aspiration of improved electric power supply in Nigeria and demonstrates Total’s commitment to meeting its promises to deliver better energy.”

The gas is being supplied to the Alaoji Power Plant from Seven Energy, while NGC will transport the gas through their pipeline and the section of the NOPL.
