The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), on Tuesday said it had increased daily average natural gas supply to gas power plants by 123 per cent.
Mr Ndu Ughamadu, NNPC Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of the corporation said this in a statement in Abuja.
Quoting June 2017 Monthly Financial and Operations Report released on Tuesday, Ughamadu said gas supply to power plants increased slightly by 0.13 per cent from 729mmscf/d in May 2017 to 730mmscf/d in June 2017.
The report indicated that nationwide petroleum products supply continued to record remarkable stability.
This followed the performance of Nigeria’s three refineries which produced between five and six million litres of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also known as petrol, per day in June.
“The corporation has maintained seamless nationwide supply and distribution of petroleum products which guarantee stable products and queue-free filling stations across the nation,” Ughamadu quoted the report.
He said the performance of the Port Harcourt Refinery continued to improve with a boost to the midstream value chain as it inched toward sustained commercial operations.
On pipeline vandalism, Ughamadu said that the corporation recorded about 86 cases of pipeline breaks across the country in the period under review.topics from
