By Engr. Joshua A. Adeoye, FNSE, FNIMechE, NETCO Coordinator.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), through its subsidiary: the Nigerian Gas Company (NGC) Limited intends to construct a 12”x 8km gas pipeline with associated facilities to distribute natural gas to five (5) customers between Ogijo (City Gate) and Sagamu environs in Ogun State. The project scope of work includes Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Testing and Commissioning.

The gas supply projects will enable NGC to realize its strategic objective of increased revenue, and will also impact positively on the achievement of the set National agenda for domestic gas utilization and industrialization. The project execution duration is planned for twelve (12) Months.

The project has the following phases:
