NNPC Pushes Back $700M Gas Pipeline Completion to August 2024

Written by gcsjjustified

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has shifted the delivery date of the $700 million Obiafu-Obrikom-Oben (OB3) gas pipeline project to August 2024. The 127-kilometer, 48-inch pipeline, which runs from the Obiafu-Obrikom gas plant to Oben in Nigeria, has faced several delays since construction began in 2021. The major impediment has been the River Niger crossing operation, which has taken over three years to complete. The pipeline, with a capacity of 2000 million cubic feet per day, is expected to play a crucial role in Nigeria's gas revolution by making gas available to petrochemical manufacturers for domestic consumption and export.
