RESTRUCTURING: Buhari Gives Matching Orders To NNPC To Find Oil In The North ASAP 

The Nigeria National Petroleum Cooperation (NNPC) has said that it has started the process leading to the exploration of oil and gas in the Sokoto basin.


Group Managing Director, Maikanti Kachalla Baru, said this when he received the Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, who paid him a visit at the NNPC Towers in Abuja Wednesday.
In a statement by Tambuwal’s spokesman, Malam Imam Imam, Baru was quoted as saying: “We have been on the issue of exploration in the frontier basins and so far some measures of steps have been taken. We have already purchased aero-magnetic data and it’s being interpreted to determine the sedimentary thickness and the basin configuration.”
He said NNPC had awarded a contract for the geological mapping of the basin, adding that samples had been collected, mapped, analysed and geological modelling executed so as to ensure data integration.
Baru stated that discussions are ongoing with Integrated Data Services Limited (IDSL) to award the contract for surface geochemistry, ground gravity and magnetics.
