Oil Exploration In Nasarawa State to Commence Soon - Baru

NNPC’s Group managing director Maikanti Baru has revealed that the company will soon commence oil exploration in Nasarawa state soon.

Baru made the disclosure when he paid a courtesy visit to the governor of the state, Umaru Tanko Almakura, on Thursday.

According to Baru, the visit was in fulfillment of the presidential mandate to resume oil exploration activities in some of the nation’s inland basins, including the Chad basin and Benue trough.

The move was also in line with NNPC’s corporate vision of 12 business focus areas (12 BUFA), informing Almakura that the NNPC team was in Nasarawa to sensitize the government and people of the state on the mission.

“I am therefore happy to be personally here to kick-start the beginning of a high-profile stakeholder engagement towards oil exploration in the Nasarawa state’s part of the Benue trough,” Baru said.

Baru also promised that the corporation would do everything possible to carry out its operations peacefully in the state with much respect to the environment.
