Power supply: TCN, NNPC set to restore normal supply gas to grid

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) and Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, have said that they were working to restore power supply across the nation through the rehabilitation of national grid and maintenance of gas pipeline, which supplies gas from Escravos region of the Niger Delta to Lagos.
It would be recalled that system’s collapse threw the entire nation into total blackout as a result of the Nigerian Gas Processing and Transportation Company Limited (NGPTC), fire outbreak on its Escravos Lagos Pipeline System near Okada, Edo State on Tuesday.
RNGPTC noted that a contractor had been mobilised to repair the affected segment of the Western Gas Pipeline, so that gas supply to Omotosho, Egbin, and Olorunsogo I and II could be restored. According to NGPTC, the work would be carried out day and night and is expected to be completed within 24 hours.
