National Petroleum Company Limited

NAN reports that the AAK project which spans a length of 614km is being developed by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC Ltd) to transport natural gas from Ajaokuta, Kogi through states and urban centres in Nigeria.

Trans-Nigeria Gas Pipeline

The project, which is expected to be completed the first quarter of 2023, is a segment of the Trans-Nigeria Gas Pipeline (TNGP) and the Trans-Saharan Gas Pipeline projects.

The AKK, when completed would provide enough gas for both domestic and export purposes, revive industries along the AKK corridor.

Speaking on the Nigeria’s attainment to 62nd independence, he said that consistency on the projects should be considered greatly to fast track completion and energy sufficiency.

“Governance is a continual thing and the real things that matter sometimes take decades or half a century to be achieved.

“So one government must do it well and pass on to another government which will equally do it well till we get to the end,” the expert advised.

Sowunmi said the projects would ensure that the power sector became the major consumer of gas while there would be availability of gas to industries like the methanol plants and fertiliser plants.

Trans Saharan

He further said the AKK and the Trans Saharan gas pipelines projects were birthed by the policies of the gas master plan.

Trans Saharan Gas

He said that the only way the EU would get alternative gas supply to EU countries from Nigeria would be through the Trans Saharan Gas pipeline.

According to him, EU could as well become ultimate beneficiary through the support in the building of the pipeline.

Local Government

“The oil and gas industry, particularly the gas sector offers Nigeria a very clear road to a genuine industrialisation in every Local Government we should take advantage of this,’’ he said.

Petroleum Industry Act

The expert however expressed satisfaction that some reforms have started in the industry in view of the implementation of the Petroleum Industry Act 2021 (PIA).
