Professor Nuhu Obaje, the director of the Ibrahim Badamasi Babaginda University Research Centre, Lapai, made this known on Thursday in Lagos.

He said his centre has informed the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and the Niger State Government about its finding.

Obaje also said his centre has introduced a technology for quick crude oil discovery and drilling.

Obaje made the disclosure at the exhibition of raw materials and local products in the Manufacturing and Equipment EXPO Nigeria 2017, in Lagos.

“We have a technology that finds oil faster. We found crude oil at Bida Basin and we used our technology to locate more areas.

“We have communicated it to Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) and the State Government.

“They will use our research and produce oil faster and in abundance. Already, the Niger State Governor, Bello Sani, has written to the presidency.

“We are aware that they have acted on it. The ball is in the NNPC’s court because we are waiting for them”, Obaje said.

The director said his team was at the exhibition to showcase their products.

He also spoke about the exploration of solid mineral deposits in the state and other parts of the country.

Deputy Director of the centre, Dr Naomi Dadi-Mamud, said the centre was using oil and dead plants to generate bio-gas.
