Abuja - The Pipelines and Products Marketing Company (PPMC) said it spent N1.321 billion on clearing and grading of the Pipelines Right of Way (PROW) between 2011 and 2012.

PPMC’s Executive Director, Services, U. Musa, made this known in a ``PPMC 2011-2012 Performance Report’’ obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)

The report stated that the amount was paid to different contractors who executed the projects in some critical pipeline axis prone to vandalism across the country.

The PPMC said that the objective of embarking on the project, which covered 381.4 kilometres, was to ensure that digging, willful damaging, breaking of pipelines and stealing of petroleum products were difficult for vandals.

Some of the lines cleared and graded included the 54 kilometres Port Harcourt-Aba System 2E project PROW in Port Harcourt Area and the 60 kilometre Bonny-Port Harcourt crude oil PROW also in Port Harcourt Area.

Others include the 88.9 kilometre Warri-Benin System 2A Project PROW, Warri,  the three kilometre Bulyde Jos-Gombe axis PROW, Gombe Area and the four kilometre Zonkwa-Jos Axis, Gombe area.
