The signing of the SRA is a critical part of the overall commercial framework that enables MPN to undertake power activities and facilitates the sale of power by MPN to Nigerian Bulk Electricity Trading Plc for itself and on behalf of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.

Front End Engineering Design and Environmental Impact Assessments for the project have been concluded, while commercial tenders for Engineering, Procurement and Construction are near completion.
