The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and the Nigerian Agip Oil Company Joint Venture is set to boost the Federal Government power generation aspiration by 480 megawatts through the completion of its Okpai Phase II Independent Power Project by 2019.

A statement by the Corporation says the group Managing Director, Maikanti Baru, disclosed this during the inauguration of the project.

He said the decision by the partners to embark on the 2nd phase of the Okpai power project was hinged on the enormous success of Okpai Phase I, which he described as the most consistent power plant in the country.

He charged the 12-man committee to work hard and explore the possibility of delivering the project ahead of the 2019 target date, stressing that the project was very critical to the nation’s power aspirations.
