Pan Ocean Oil Corporation (Nigeria), has commissioned the 67-kilometre long Amukpe Escravos Pipeline (AEP) making it ready for optimum use.
This landmark development is a demonstration of commitment by the company to transport crude to Escravos, with access for tie-in by oil companies operating in the Western Niger Delta.
Already, Seplat has released 3311 barrels of crude oil into the pipeline.
The Amukpe Escravos Pipeline was built using the horizontal directional drilling technology, making it tamper-proof, durable, safer for operations, minimising environmental impact, and discouraging bunkering activities.
To celebrate this milestone, Pan Ocean’s chief operating officer, Olajide Ishola said: “we are elated at the success of this project, and we owe it to the many hands which have all contributed in one way or the other to bring this to completion.
“To our regulators, industry stakeholders and lenders for their support thus far. The completion of AEP was made possible by the collaboration.
