Shell plans to build gas line in Abia – Official
Shell Gas Nigeria Limited on Tuesday said that plans were underway to construct a gas line around key industrial areas in Abia. Mr Ed Ubong, the Managing Director of Shell Gas Nigeria Limited, disclosed this when he visited Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu at the Government House in Umuahia.
Ubong said the decision to build the gas line was informed by the desire of the organisation to contribute to the development of the state and nation at large. He said: “We want to build a rail around key industrial areas in Abia such as Ogbor Hill, Osisioma and Ariaria Market.”
“We want to make sure this state becomes the industrial hub in the East and would like the governor to visit a construction site where a 10km gas line that will take gas to Osisioma is being constructed. This gas line will allow us to construct another line which will be used to move gas to Ariaria market and provide power to the market,” he added.
