The corporation said:

“The pipeline, which was conceived to connect demand from the northern part of the country with supply from the south would be the biggest infrastructure development in the country’s recent history.

“It will also mark a significant shift in the nation’s energy policy; from revenue targeted export programmes to development-focused domestic supply programmes.

“Significantly, the $2.8 billion project will breakthrough today, after seven years of rigorous processes that morphed from policy conception through implementation strategy designs, master-plans and solid implementation programmes.

“The biggest value to the economy is the participation of indigenous engineering firms led by pipeline giant, Oilserv Limited, in the delivery of some of the phases of the project.

“The company has successfully delivered over 17 similar challenging projects in the country, including the engineering, procurement and construction of the 67-kilometre Obiafu/Obrikom to Oben (OB3) 48-inch diameter gas transmission pipeline system.
