SUCCOUR will soon come the way of four Kolo Creek cluster communities in Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State as Shell Petroleum Development Company, SPDC, has commenced the building of a gas turbine plant at Imiringi to provide uninterrupted electricity supply to the area.
The oil-rich communities of Elebele, Imiringi, Otuasega and Yiba-Ama (Oruma) have been without electricity over the years, following the collapse of the state- owned Imiringi gas turbine.
The new SPDC gas project known as ‘K2S’ being handled by Nestoil, when completed is expected to boost commerce in the area where many of the residents have been forced to relocate to Yenagoa, the state capital, due to the many years of power outage.
Chairman of Kolo Creek Cluster Development Board, Chief Okpu Solomon, at the commissioning of some SPDC sponsored projects in the area, thanked the oil company for initiating the gas turbine project.
