As part of efforts to achieve the Federal Government’s LPG(cooking gas) penetration framework and expansion plan both geared towards encouraging the use of gas in households, power generation, auto-gas and industrial applications, the WAGL Energy Limited, a joint venture business of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company(NNPC) Limited and the Sahara Group, has revealed its plans to build jetties for LPG distribution.
The company made this known through Emmanuel Ubani, Managing Director, WAGL Energy Limited, in a press statement issued on Sunday.
The key objective of the NNPC Ltd and Sahara for the project, according to Ubani, is to facilitate the distribution of cooking gas across the sub-region.
Ubani said, “Ensuring this requires both public and private investments at a level that allows for economies of scale, supporting in making the sector commercially viable.
“All parts of the value chain must be in place and functional, this also mean that a distribution system to enable feasible access for the users must exist. There is also need for a ready and vibrant market network which accommodates use of the alternative energy source,” he stated.
