NNPC discovers oil in Bauchi starts gas flaring

NNPC discovers oil in Bauchi starts gas flaring

After gulping billions of dollars into exploration, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said it discovered oil and gas in Bauchi state.

The corporation said condensate and light sweet oil of API gravity ranging from 38 to 41 were also discovered in the State, but the commercial viability is yet to be confirmed.

NNPC made this known on Friday, saying, the gas component is currently being flared to avoid pressure build up around the drilling rig.

 “At about 21:20 hours of 10th October 2019, @NNPCgroup drilling crew working at Kolmani River-II in Gongola Basin have encountered hydrocarbon outflow to the well head while performing well test operations.

“The gas component is currently being flared to avoid pressure build up around the drilling rig. Further assessment of the Hydrocarbon type and volume are being carried out,” NNPC tweeted on its official Twitter handle.
