NNPC searches for oil in Sokoto Basin


PACKAGED FRAUD!!! AS FG OF THE NORTH AND NNPC SAYS THEY ARE IN SEARCHES FOR OIL IN SOKOTO BASIN...SEE

Christian Rowland writing for ODOGWU MEDIA...The Nigerian National Petro­leum Cooperation (NNPC), has started the process that will lead to the exploration of oil and gas in the Sokoto basin.

The NNPC’s Group Managing Director, Maikanti Kachalla Baro, stated this when he received the Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, who paid a working visit to the NNPC Tow­ers in Abuja.

“We have been on the issue of exploration in the frontier basins and so far, some measures have been taken. We have already pur­chased aeromagnetic data and it is being interpreted to determine the sedimentary thickness and the ba­sin’s configuration.

“Second, we have awarded a contract for the geological map­ping of the basin and I am happy to state here that out cup samples have been collected, mapped, ana­lysed and geological modelling ex­ecuted, so as to ensure data integra­tion,” the GMD stated.

He added that discussions are ongoing with Integrated Data Services Limited (IDSL) to award contract for surface geochemistry, ground gravity and magnetics. This, according to him, is necessary to de­termine if hydrocarbon was gener­ated in the basins and importantly, to integrate all date for understand­ing of petroleum systems of the ba­sins.

Baro said the NNPC will also carry out high resolution regional 2D seismic data acquisition to iden­tify leads and prospects, after which a 3D seismic data acquisition will be carried out over leads and prospects.
“After all these are carried out, we will then begin to drill for oil and gas in the basin,” he added.

While commending Tambuw­al for the visit, Baro assured that the NNPC is giving required attention to renewable energy and inland ba­sins in order to create a prosperous future for the entity.

Earlier in his remarks, Tambu­wal said that various studies have been carried out by the government on the Sokoto Basins, the result of which will be made available to the NNPC to aid its efforts.

He said the government, in col­laboration with the Usman Danfo­dio University, will organise a na­tional conference on the Sokoto Basin in October where interna­tional scholars will make presenta­tions on the topic.

“We are inviting you and the NNPC to take part in this impor­tant conference because we believe it will add value in our search for hy­drocarbon in the Sokoto Basin,” he added.

He said historical records indi­cate that the presence of hydrocar­bon in the Sokoto Basin has been a subject of interest to geologists for long, a situation that made Italian oil giants, Elf, to consider prelimi­nary exploration activities begin­ning from the 50s.

He said Sokoto government will welcome the start of activities and will support any effort that will lead to positive results.
