PPMC commences repair work on vandalised pipeline

21 January 2014, 15:06

Lagos - The management of the Pipelines and Products Marketing Company (PPMC), on Tuesday said that repairs have commenced at the recently-attacked System 2B pipeline at Akute-Itashi village, a suburb in Ogun.

The Manager, Public Affairs and External Relations of PPMC, Nasir Imodagbe, confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

Suspected pipeline vandals who are still at large, on the evening of January 19, ruptured a PPMC pipeline at Akute-Itashi village.

Imodagbe said, however, that the fire that erupted from the vandalised line had been put out, adding that the company’s engineers had commenced repairs on the vandalised portions of the pipeline.

He assured that pumping of products will start immediately works are completed on the ongoing repairs at Akute-Itashi village.

The Public Affairs Officer, however, attributed the incessant pipeline explosions in the area to continuous vandalism of the pipeline.

“We have put out the fire and repairs have commenced on the line. I can assure you that pumping of products will resume immediately the repairs are completed on Tuesday.

``The explosion which occurred on Sunday was due to the attack on the System 2B pipeline by vandals, to sIphon petroleum products,’’ he added.
