FG battles gas leakage at Rivers facility

Three Federal Government departments are working with Rivers State’s Ministry of Environment to handle a gas leak problem at the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company’s Well 6, in Sangama community, Bonny Local Government Area.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited’s flagship upstream subsidiary, the NPDC, is involved in oil exploration and production.

Gbenga Komolafe, Chief Executive of the Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission, stated on Wednesday that the NUPRC, National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency, Rivers State Ministry of Environment, community representatives, and the Nigerian Police Force were all working to contain the leak.Information Guide Nigeria

Komolafe, in a statement he personally signed, said, “The NUPRC has been notified of a gas leak incident on NPDC’s Well 6, in Sangama community, Bonny Local Government Area of Rivers State.

“Efforts are being made alongside other relevant agencies to deal with the situation.

Komolafe added, “A joint investigation visit was carried out on September 11, by a team from NUPRC, NOSDRA, Rivers State Ministry of Environment as well as community representatives with the NPF in attendance.

The NUPRC boss stated that during the joint visit, the team observed a gas leak from one of the valves on the wellhead.

“A closer look revealed that the Anode valve on the well head had been tampered with. It was adjudged by the regulators to have been caused by third party interference,” he stated.

Despite the team’s technical explanation, he indicated that the community did not agree with the regulators and, as a result, would not sign the joint inquiry report.JAMB Result
