Nigeria: Delta Pleads On Pipeline to Edo

Delta State Government, yesterday told the people of Idjerhe kingdom in Ethiope West Local Government Area to allow SEPLAT Petroleum Development Company carry out the laying of its pipelines from the community to the Oben flow station, Edo State.

The people had demanded that a flow station be constructed in the area by the company before it could commence the laying of the pipeline from the oil field in the kingdom.

At a meeting between the state government, the company and leaders of the Idjerhe kingdom, the state Commissioner for Oil and Gas, Mr. Mofe Pirah, explained that SEPLAT already had two flow stations in Delta that were being utilized to full capacity and one other in Oben, a neighbouring community in Edo State which was below 30% utilization.
