Axxela Limited, a sub-Saharan gas & power portfolio company, has submitted a feasibility study to the Nigerian Gas Processing and Transportation Company (NGPTC) to build the Escravos Lagos Pipeline System (ELPS)-Ibadan-Ilorin-Jebba (EIIJ) pipeline network across the Western and Central states of Nigeria, Daily Trust reports.
The study was compiled by Worley Parsons, and supported by counterpart funding from the United States Trade and Development Authority (USTDA). The pipeline is expected to commence in Ibadan, Oyo and run through the towns of Osogbo, Ogbomosho, Ilorin, Ado-Ekiti, and terminate in Jebba located in Kwara.
Axxela’s CEO, Bolaji Osunsanya said: “The impetus for power-driven initiatives is underscored by the significance of this project, and its impact and scope are parallel with the Federal Government’s aspirations to improve the power situation. Ultimately, major demand centres will require more electricity to cater to the growing power requirements of industrial and commercial clusters.”
