Delta: Oil Workers Injured As PPMC Pipeline Explodes in Urhobo Community

LAGOS OCTOBER 6TH (URHOBOTODAY) – A pipeline belonging to the Pipelines and Products Marketing Company (PPMC) exploded on Saturday evening around Adeje, an oil hub in Okpe Local Government Area of Delta State, leaving scores of oil engineers with severe burns.

THEWILL gathered that the pipeline burst into flames as engineers from the PPMC, a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), were repairing a vandalized portion of the pipeline which conveys products to the PPMC’s depot in Benin City, Edo State.
THEWILL has not been able to independently confirm whether there are fatalities as the victims have been transported to the Delta State University teaching Hospital Oghara, Ethiope West LGA.
Witnesses told THEWILL that the pipeline was vandalized some weeks ago by oil thieves.
