Pipeline vandalism forces shutdown of 504MW Alaoji power plant



The Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC) has shut down the 504MW Alaoji Power Plant due to an attack on the pipeline conveying gas to the plant.

TotalEnergies EP Nigeria Limited had in a letter to the Company said the NOPL pipeline was vandalised on January 7, 2022, at KP41 Alaoma Etche Cluster.

It said the Line Block Valve at KP38 was closed, to isolate the sabotage point and depressurization of the line.

In a statement issued by, Emmanuel Ojor Head, Communication and Public Relations, NDPHC, the firm was quoted to have said that the sabotage would affect gas supply to Alaoji until further notice.

“Gas supply to Alaoji Power Plant was suspended due to this unfortunate event. Preliminary investigation to determine the extent of the damage is ongoing, and repair works shall commence as soon as feasible,” it said.

This is coming weeks after Omotosho NIPP was shut down by the Nigeria Gas Company (NGC) due to a breach onTrans-Forcardos Pipeline (TFP).

The breach led to the deferment of about 250MMscfd of gas from the Pipeline Network, a situation that brought the Network Pressure to abysmal levels, thereby triggering an emergency.

The NDPHC said the curtailment impacted its operations negatively with Omotosho NIPP being shut down and gas supply to GEREGU NIPP and Ihovbor NIPP also limited thus leading to part load or low generation from these available power plants.

“The Management of NDPHC hereby assures our customers that Alaoji Power Plant and others will resume power generation as soon as gas supply is restored,” the statement.
