Firm installs fibre optic detector in gas pipeline

An indigenous firm implementing the Ajaokuta axis of the Ajaokuta Kaduna Kano gas pipeline has said that it is secured with the fiber optic detector system to prevent vandals from hacking it.

With the system, it is possible to monitor a vandal since the system can record his footprints to prompt attention for the necessary action.

The company revealed this to reporters in Ajaokuta in Kogi State, when the Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Group Managing Director, Malam Mele Kyari and the Director General Debt Management Office, Patience Oniha were in the project site in an inspection tour.

The chairman of the firm, Oilserv Limited, Engr. Emeka Okwuosa, earlier told reporters that in order to secure the site which is in the middle of the bush, the company adopts a security procedure based on strategy and plan.

He said the firm works closely and in tandem with the community to secure the project. According to him, the firm employs the local labor and gives them subcontracts to allow them a sense of belonging to the project.

He added that “We do a scan and we know what the issues are. Based on that we deploy the right security. You can see we are working in the middle of the bush but we don’t appear to have a lot of problem. We are doing the necessary things because the major thing about security is being in tandem with the community.”
