Loading Resumes at Mosimi Depot after 12 Months

Posted On April 10th, 2017 - 3:36 pm | by Oil and gas press

Products supply and distribution have received a major boost following the resumption of loading activities by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) at its Mosimi Area depot in Ogun State, over the weekend.

Group Managing Director of the Corporation, Dr. Maikanti Kacalla Baru, who supervised the recommencement of loading operations at the area, said the development marked a major milestone in NNPC’s quest to ensure steady supply and distribution of white petroleum products across the entire nation.

Dr. Baru, who was represented by the Chief Operating Officer, Downstream, Mr. Henry Ikem Obih, said:

“Today marks the beginning of a new era of hope and the return of commercial activities in this economic corridor, as products are being received in Atlas Cove and pumped to Mosimi for on-ward pumping to Satellite depot and loading from these two (2) great depots in this Area.”

He added:

“This is a historic day for NNPC, the South West Region and indeed Nigeria as this great Area is once again back on stream, bringing more fortunes for all and sundry. The stress of moving our trucks to Lagos to convey petroleum product to this area is getting highly minimized.”

It would be recalled that System 2B Pipeline (Mosimi Area) has been down for almost a year now (since May, 2016) due to the activities of pipeline vandals along the Atlas Cove-Mosimi Pipeline Right of Way (PROW), a development that has led to crippling of commercial activities and loss of lives due to the nefarious activities of vandals.

“At some point, commercial activities that spun from our operations in this area had to be moved to Lagos. We can see that vandalism causes huge loss not only to NNPC, but to the host communities and the general public,” the GMD explained.

He thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for the constant support in ensuring the revamping of critical Oil and Gas infrastructures, especially Petroleum Products storage and distribution facilities that will aid effective distribution of products across the country.

The GMD also commended the Ogun State Government for its commitment towards ensuring the security of NNPC’s pipeline network, especially around Arepo area.

He further noted that the re-streaming of loading activities at the Mosimi Area was in line with NNPC’s drive to ensure development of oil and gas infrastructure as contained in the Corporation’s 12 Business Focus Areas (12 BUFA) and by extension, realizing Mr. President’s agenda of adding value across the entire oil and gas value chain.

The GMD observed that the NNPC had recently rehabilitated and re-streamed some critical oil and gas infrastructure and petroleum product facilities such as the System 2E (Port Harcourt-Aba) pipeline after over a decade of poor functionality.
