Govt to monitor real-time oil production

Govt to monitor real-time oil production... NAIJA INTEL

A PLAN by the Federal Government to introduce National Production Monitoring System (NPMS) that will take accurate measurement of oil production may start soon.

This is coming as efforts are on to ensure more cars in the country are powered by compressed natural gas to reduce demand for petroleum products for vehicular needs.

At the 2013 ministerial mid-term briefing tagged “moving the oil and gas sector to the next level”, in Abuja Tuesday, the Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, explained that the ministry had concluded a pilot scheme on the monitoring mechanism.

Her words: “As part of improving accountability with regard to Nigeria’s oil production, the Ministry of Petroleum Resources has concluded a pilot scheme for real-time crude oil production monitoring. The programme, which is referred to as National Production Monitoring System (NPMS), is a remote monitoring system emplaced not only to monitor real-time production, primarily, but also other field parameters needed for effective reservoir management and administration.”

And to reduce the pressure on petroleum products for vehicular movement in the absence of a functional rail transport, the minister hinted that government had embarked on steps aimed at ensuring more vehicles use compressed natural gas for fuel purpose.

“Through the NNPC Joint Venture with NIPCO, Compressed Natural Gas for vehicular use has grown with the pilot initiative in Benin City, Edo State. Over 2,000 cars now run on natural gas in Benin and many more get converted daily. There are six gas filling stations in the city and the most dominant users are commercial taxi drivers. The impact on their daily economics has been significant and the expansion in subscription of new conversions has been by word of mouth to fellow taxi drivers.  It is intended to now expand this initiative across the country, reducing the cost of transportation while at the same time enhancing the quality of the environment,” she said.

She also said that the NNPC had been embarking on aggressive exploration as reflected in the acquisition of a total of 6,102 square kilometres (sq.km) of seismic data, including 818 sq.km acquired in the Chad Basin in phases three, four and five combined.

Another acquisition of 266 sq.km of seismic data in the phase six is ongoing by Integrated Data Services Limited (a NNPC subsidiary) in the Chad Basin even at the height of the security challenges.

Alison-Madueke disclosed that a total of 24,680 sq.km of seismic data was either processed or reprocessed in readiness for seismic interpretation. In addition, IDSL Data Processing Centre (DPC) has been upgraded to the largest Seismic Data Processing Centre in the West African sub-region with a processing capability of 20,000 sq.km from 2,000 sq.km.
