By Energy Worth

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), has said it is planning to build new power plants from its infrastructural development projects.

Group Managing Director of the NNPC Maikanti Baru, said this in a statement in Abuja, on Thursday.

According to Baru, some of the new projects like the 614 kilometer Ajaokuta-Kaduna-Kano, AKK, Gas Pipeline Project, will ensure power plants that are built can inject stability into the national grid.

“NNPC is driving a number of initiatives which included collaborating with the National Assembly to address the fiscals; putting the required infrastructure in place as well as ensuring that new power plants are built,” Baru said.

“On our part, we are keen on ensuring the sanctity of all our contracts. This, surely, will ultimately kick-start our industrial development.”
