Mobil to build power plant in Nigeria

Sep 22, 1998 02:00 AM

Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has given approval to Mobil to build a wholly owned 350 MW power plant in south-eastern Nigeria.
NNPC's managing director, Dalhatu Bayero, said the approval was given to build the plant at Bonny but gave no other details of when the project had been agreed or when Mobil planned to begin work on the project.
"Mobil has received federal government approval to build a wholly owned 350 MW independent power plant in Bonny," Bayero told.
Nigeria has long seen power generation as a use for the gas associated with oil production, as much as 75 % of which is currently flared. It has also promised that the power sector will be opened up to outside competition.
