The Group Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC), Dr Maikanti Baru, on Friday said that the company would commence oil exploration in the Gongola Basin. Baru said this in Bauchi while delivering Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU) pre-convocation lecture titled 'Enhancing University-Industry Collaboration to support Nigerian Content Policy, Industrialization and Economic Growth'.

Baru explained that the exploration would be conducted in collaboration with Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi, and Modibbo Adama University of Technology, Yola. He said the partners were providing technical support in the area of environmental impact assessment.

'Soon, we shall start drilling exploratory wells in the Gongola Basin commencing with appraisal of the Kolmani River-1 discovery. This is one of the significant achievements of this administration within the last three years, especially on oil exploration activities,' Baru said. He said that Nigerian companies were now participating in oil and gas activities that were hitherto carried out by foreign companies.
