Bury floating gas pipeline, Bayelsa community begs Shell

By Samuel Oyadongha

Yenagoa—Indigenes of Imiringi town in Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State have pleaded with Shell Petroleum Development Company, SPDC, to bury a gas pipeline floating across the Kolo Creek.

It was gathered that the pipeline from Shell’s Kolo Creek Logistics base, Imiringi, is a gas delivery line to the Soku plant in Rivers State.

The angry indigenes, who are predominantly farming and fishing folks, wondered why  a section of the same pipeline buried under the road would be floated across the creek.

They lamented that the floating of the gas pipeline across the creek is causing them serious discomfort as they can no longer embark on fishing and convey their farm harvest beyond the affected area.
