After it commenced the search for crude oil at the Nasarawa State end of the Benue Trough last week, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation on Thursday announced that it had started mobilising for oil exploration in the Benue State area of the trough.

The Group Managing Director, NNPC, Maikanti Baru, led a delegation from the corporation to the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, and disclosed that all was set for seismic data acquisition work to commence in the state.

He also said apart from oil exploratory work, the corporation was ready to commence its biofuel project located in the Agasha/Guma area of the state.
