Gas explosion: NLNG denies owning Rivers pipeline

Two weeks after a gas pipeline exploded in Elibrada community, Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State, the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Limited, NLNG has denied ownership of the affected pipeline.

Recall that on Wednesday 6th January 2021, a gas pipeline explosion rocked Rivers State, creating heavy impact on the environment and causing residents of Elibrada and Oduoha to desert their communities for safety. The pipeline, according to the host community, may have been operated by either of Nigeria LNG and or the Nigerian Agip Oil Company, NAOC, since the two firms have gas pipelines runing on the same line where the incident happened. But the management of NLNG has explained that the company was not the operator of the said pipeline.

NLNG’s General Manager, External Relations and Sustainable Development, Eyono Fatayi-Williams, disclosed that none of its facilities or operations were impacted by the explosion. Fatayi-Williams said the pipeline explosion has not affected gas supply to any of NLNG’s facility in Bonny, where its plant is situated, adding that the said incident did not have any impact on NLNG’s production.
