The map below shows the exact location of the power station in Gbarain-Ubie - Yenagoa LGA, Bayelsa State, Nigeria.
Gbarain is one of several National Integrated Power Projects, which have been deemed "critical infrastructure in the generation, transmission, distribution and natural gas supply sub-sectors of the electric power value chain" by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission.
Gbarain gets natural gas delivered from the nearby Shell Gbaran-Ubie Integrated Oil and Gas Project, although in 2017, Gbarain and its fellow NIPPs suffered a gas shortage and stopped producing electricity off and on for several months.
