Nigeria: 'No Plans to Relocate NNPC Low Station'

Lagos — Pan Ocean Oil Corporation Nigeria Limited, operator of Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC)/Pan Ocean Joint Venture says it has no plan to relocate any of its flow stations, gas plant or any other operational facility.

Mrs Edith Okujagu, Assistant General Manager, External Relations of the company told newsmen that contrary to what has been reported recently, a flow station is not a facility that can be moved from one place to the other.

"The notion that an operational facility like a flow station will be moved from one location to another location is simply not practical. The location of an operational facility is decided on purely technical evaluation to assure the integrity and safety of operations and protect the interest of all stakeholders. We want to assure our neighbouring communities and indeed all stakeholders that Pan Ocean does not have any plan for such undertaking", she explained.

She re-assured that the company is presently focused on the long term plan of improving its footprints in the two states of Delta and Edo.

She said Pan Ocean's continued investment in the gas sector demonstrates the company's focused, long term, commitments in its operations.

"We will continue to build on the existing structure in partnership with our neighbouring communities," she said.
