NEW OIL EXPLORATION IN SOKOTO STATE BY THE NNPC | TRAITNEWS

The Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has appealed to the management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), to activate oil and gas exploration campaign in the Sokoto Inland Sedimentary Basin with a view to establishing the volume and value of hydrocarbon deposits there.

The governor, who stated this when he led a delegation to the NNPC Towers in Abuja yesterday enthused that based on existing exploration records, it was likely that renewed search for oil in the basin would yield some positive results in the nearest future.

While extolling the current administration for re-invigorating the quest for oil in the new frontiers, Tambuwal noted that the successful search for hydrocarbon deposit in the basin would go a long way in increasing the nation’s oil reserve with the attendant value addition.
