The Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said on Wednesday stated that vandals have removed most of the pipelines between Aba and Enugu.
The Group Executive Director, Refinery, Mr Anibor Kragha, who said the NNPC were focused on increasing fuel supply to markets outside Lagos and Abuja, pointed out the negative impact vandals have on their operation.
Speaking on the pipelines while addressing state house correspondents, he said most of them were on pressure testing to ensure safety before pumping through them.
He said that the Enugu depot would take some time to be revived but added that Aba depot was ready to service the entire East.
He said that “between Aba and Enugu, a lot of pipelines were removed and taken away by vandals and needed to be replaced.”
“We just have to work on that one and we can pipe from Aba to Enugu then to Makurdi and Yola.”
