Pan Ocean Oil Corporation announced the Amukpe-Escravos Pipeline Project, a joint venture between the company and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, is on track to be placed in service before the end of 2017.
“This great achievement means that Pan Ocean has an alternative line to export her crude and create an opportunity for others who have been using Trans Forcados Pipeline to export their crude without disruption,” Dr. Festus Fadeyi, Pan Ocean’s Chairman, said. “This project will help the country to continue to export crude oil and keep the economy alive.”
