Federal Government has said it is pursuing the opening of micro Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plants across communities to address rising prices of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG).
Chairman of Natural Gas Expansion Programme (NGEP), Dr Mohammed Ibrahim, spoke at the 2022 Annual General Meeting of Nigerian Association of Liquefied Petroleum Gas Marketers (NALPGAM) in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital.
With the theme: “LPG Sustainability and Contemporary Issues,’’ Ibrahim said the Federal Government would ensure LPG was available at an affordable rate .
“So, we are building micro LNG plants everywhere… we can have a 4,000 mmbtu LNG plant right in any village where you have a flare site.
Ibrahim said Nigeria had no business exporting LNG when the country was yet to address consumption and transformation of the sector.
He noted that the country had an abundance of LNG in Dahomy Basin, Niger Delta Basin, Bida Basin, Gondola Basin and Chad Basin.
“Nigeria is a haven of natural gas. So, now that LNG is the transition fuel it is an opportunity to take advantage of the resource to develop the country…’’
