Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the discovery of hydrocarbon deposits in the Kolmani River II well in the Upper Gongola Basin section of Benue Trough can be a plus to the Nigerian economy, Mele Kyari, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) boss, had said.
Kyari added that apart from boosting the economy of the country, the oil and gas sector of Nigeria has a lot to gain from the discovery. According to a statement by the acting spokesperson of the NNPC, Samson Makoji, Kyari said this at the ninth edition of the 'practical Nigerian content summit' in Yenegoa, Bayelsa state.
The statement quoted Kyari as saying: "Between the discovery of hydrocarbon in the Gongola basin and bringing the oil to the market, a lot of processes would be triggered which would snowball into a labyrinth of productive activities with the potential for massive job creation across the value chain."
Represented at the event by Farouk Sai’d, chief operating officer, corporate services of the NNPC, Kyari said the processes would help the country with thousands of direct and indirect employment.
