The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) on Tuesday in Lagos said gas supply to power generating stations had built up gradually after the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) restored a ruptured pipeline.
Mrs Ndidi Mbah, General Manager, Public Affairs of TCN, said within a day power supply would be restored to normal. Mbah said an indication that gas supply had improved was the increase in power generation into the national grid to 3,876.9 Megawatts as at 17.00hrs on Monday, as reported by the National Control Centre (NCC).
According to Mbah, as soon as the gas build up is completed, the affected generating stations would resume normal generation into the national grid. It would be recalled that TCN had said on June 15, that the rupture of a major Nigerian Gas Company (NGC) pipeline had scuttled the delivery of gas to six power plants and affected power generation.
