As part of efforts to ramp up power supply in the country, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and its Joint Venture Partner, Nigeria Agip Oil Company Limited have pledged their commitment to implement the Okpai Phase 2 Project to shore up the current power generation with 500 megawatts of power.
Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Dr. Maikanti Baru, made the disclosure when he received the new Vice Chairman and Managing Director of NAOC, Fiorillo Lorenzo, in his office at the NNPC Towers on Tuesday.
He said that the Okpai Phase 2 Project was being fine-tuned to expeditiously bring it on stream, adding that it would increase power generation by between 10 to 12 per cent.
