NNPC GMD, Kyari announces HDDT to check pipeline vandalism
As part of measures to monitor and check pipeline vandalism, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) is to deplore Horizontal Directional Drilling Technology (HDDT).
He said curtailing the spate of vandalism would also ensure that resources do not end up in the hands of wrong people to prevent collateral damage that might be apparent in the phenomenon.
According to him, whenever incidences of crude oil or petroleum products spill happened in communities due to activities of vandals or age of the pipelines, the corporation as a routine, restored such lines, cleaned the environment and contained the likely effects of the leaks.
“If NNPC depots are allowed to function as designed, the regular congestion of tankers at Apapa, Lagos, will be prevented.
