PPMC redirects pipelines from reach of vandals

04 March 2013, 16:17

Lagos - The Pipelines and Product Marketing Company (PPMC) says it has engaged the services of an engineering firm, ENIKKOM, to redirect pipelines from the reach of vandals

Mr Haruna Momoh, the Managing Director of PPMC, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Lagos.

Momoh said that the pipelines would be placed in a manner that would be difficult for the vandals to reach.

“The engineering firm is bringing modern technology to bear on the system by burying the pipelines much deeper,” he said.

Momoh said that the Federal Government, two weeks ago, begun the rehabilitation of the pipelines’ right of way from Atlas Cove in Lagos to Ibadan.

He said that Nigerian Army engineers had been engaged to do the rehabilitation job.

``One of the team started the rehabilitation from Atlas Cove in Lagos, while the other team commenced from Arepo Village in Ogun to Mosinmi Depot in Ibadan, Oyo State.

``So far about 20 kilometres of the pipelines’ right of way have been cleared by the Nigerian Army,’’ he said.

According to him, the pipeline is about 72.8 kilometres stretch from Atlas Cove to Mosinmi Depot.

He said that the pipelines had a network of about 5,120 kilometres across the country.

Momoh said that NNPC had also built watch towers and police posts at the black spots near the pipelines’ right of way.
