Gas pipeline explosion has not affected supply – NNPC


Nigeria’s state oil firm said on Friday that the supply of gas had not been affected by an explosion the previous day on a major pipeline, Reuters reports.

The Escravos-Lagos Pipeline was hit by an explosion in the Warri region of Delta state, the 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.
