Nigeria LNG’s commitment to the sustained supply of cooking gas, Liquefied Petroleum Gas, into the local market is premised on the need to ensure the use of cleaner energy for the health benefit of Nigerians and cleaner environment in line with the mission of the company to help to build a better Nigeria.

The Managing Director of Nigeria LNG, Tony Attah said this in Lagos yesterday during a visit to key LPG facilities in Apapa. Tony Attah added: “NLNG is the biggest receptacle to gas in the country and it is our contribution that has changed the game in the gas industry in Nigeria. We have since helped in the reduction of gas flared in the country from 65% to less than 20%. And as part of our vision to help build a better Nigeria, we are focused on sustained supply of LPG in a bid to deepen its usage in the country, promote environmentalism thus amongst others reduce death from inhalation of smoke from dirty fuels.

Volumes of LPG in the market was less than 50,000 tons per annum before our intervention in 2007 and since then deliveries have been on the increase with 262,000 tons delivered by NLNG alone in 2016 while total domestic consumption was at over 450,000 tons. We are focussing on better environmentalism through steady supply of LPG, a clean and versatile energy which will protect our environment. Nigeria LNG is raising the ante in ensuring a clean environment for Nigeria.”

The NLNG delegation to Navgas Ltd, NIPCO PLC and Nigerian Products Storage Company (NPSC) Terminals in Apapa included Deputy Director, Sadeeq Mai-Bornu, General Manager Commercial, Godwill Dike, and General Manager External Relations, Kudo Eresia-Eke, and Health & Safety Manager, Amadi Amadi.

During the facilities inspection, the Deputy Managing Director of Nigeria LNG Limited, Sadeeq Mai-Bornu, said that there are opportunities for partnership with Nigeria LNG and businesses to create employment from new business opportunities, thereby reducing poverty.  Sadeeq Mai-Bornu said: “Nigeria LNG is the arrowhead of the federal governments drive to reduce gas flared in the country and we are committed to ensuring reliable supply of the product for a cleaner environment.”

Godwill Dike, the General Manager Commercial of Nigeria LNG Limited reiterated NLNG’s commitment to de-risking the Domestic LPG value chain, highlighting NLNG’s demonstration in that sense having committed resources to eliminating bottlenecks inhibiting steady supply of affordable LPG. “NLNG has recently gone into an arrangement with NPSC to revamp key LPG jetties in Apapa namely; the New Oil Jetty (NOJ), the Bulk Oil Platform (BOP) and the Petroleum Wharf Apapa (PWA). On completion of revamp works, delivery of product via all three jetties would ensure steady supply of LPG through the facilities and should lead to reduction in end user prices with volumes being readily available,” Dike added.

On his part, Kudo Eresia-Eke, General Manager, External Relations, Nigeria LNG Limited said: “As part of NLNG’s constant advocacy on helping to build a better Nigeria, it is focussing on supply of LPG and has currently dedicated 350,000 tonnes per annum for the domestic market. The visit of the management of NLNG today is to explore how there can be a better flow of the product into the market so that price of the product can be reduced and the product easily affordable.”

Before the intervention of Nigeria LNG Limited in the local Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) market, the product, like all other petroleum products in the country, was imported and sold to marketers for distribution and retail supply to consumers.
