NNPC Fixes Date For Buhari First North-East Oil Drill

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), is to witness the first drilling of crude oil in the Kolmani River II Well on the Upper Benue Trough, Gongola Basin, in the North-Eastern part of Nigeria, on Tuesday.

Officials of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited stated that oil drilling activities at the Kolmani River, situated in the Bauchi and Gombe fields, would commence in earnest after the official flag-off.
In October 2019, the NNPC announced the discovery of hydrocarbon deposits in the Kolmani River II Well.

The oil firm had stated that it acquired 435.54km2 of 3D Seismic Data over Kolmani Prospect in the Upper Benue Trough, Gongola Basin.

“The President is expected at the site on Tuesday to witness the first drilling of crude in the north, which is going to further boost our production as a nation,” an official of the national oil company, who spoke on condition, due to lack of authorisation, stated.
