NNPC kickstarts oil exploration in Nasarawa

1 min read

Oil search in Nigeria’s inland basins has received a boost following the commencement of exploration activities in the Nasarawa State’s section of the Benue Trough by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.
The Group Managing Director, NNPC, Dr. Maikanti Baru, announced this during a visit to the Nasarawa State Governor, Tanko Almakura, in Lafia on Thursday.
Baru stated that the visit was in fulfilment of the presidential mandate that the NNPC should resume oil exploration activities in some of the nation’s inland basins, including the Chad Basin and Benue Trough.
He said the mandate was driven by the urgent need for the country to increase its oil and gas reserves, thereby improving revenue streams and creating more business and employment opportunities for Nigerians.
