Axxela, a gas and power company, has disclosed its plan to build a 510-kilometer gas pipeline network across some states.

According to the company, the project would commence in Ibadan, Oyo state and run through the towns of Osogbo, Ogbomosho, Ilorin, Ado-Ekiti, terminating in Jebba in Kwara state.

The company said the proposed pipeline project was conceived as part of the Nigeria gas master plan to improve power generation and distribution to major cities.

Saidu Mohammed, group executive director and chief operating officer, gas and power at the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), said all hands were on deck to implement the project.

“Now, it’s key we don’t lose sight of the low-hanging fruits, as we seek to provide gas to the country in keeping with the national plan,” he said.

Bolaji Osunsanya, chief executive officer of Axxela, said the project aligns with the federal government’s aspirations to improve the power situation.

“Ultimately, major demand centers will require more electricity to cater to the growing power requirements of industrial and commercial clusters,” he said.
