Informed sources from Ubari gas-fired power plant confirmed Saturday the continuation of operational testing of the turbines, in preparation for the operation of the plant, according to local media outlets.

The tests commenced after the start of pumping oil from the Sharara oilfield to the power plant, last Friday.

The General Electricity Company is expecting the Ubari gas-fired power plant to be ready for service by the month of next July, aiming that the step will help offset the shortfall in power demand.
