Key oil industry player Aiteo on Tuesday confirmed that the fire reported within its Right Of Way (ROW) of the Nembe Creek Trunk Line (NCTL) on April 21, 2019 “has been completely put out”.
“The Security team conducted further inspections at various times yesterday and confirms this position,” a statement issued by the company in Lags said.
It said that “in line with regulatory requirements, a Joint Investigation Visit (JIV) comprising security and regulatory agencies as well as community representatives and Aiteo personnel will be constituted and deployed to the site to attend to the necessary incident formalities. This team is expected at the incident site imminently.
