English Español Nigeria: NNPC to start supplying CNG fuelling stations

Nigeria’s DPR ordered last week 9,000 petrol stations to install natural gas fuelling equipment to boost the share of natural gas in transport.

Last update:

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) will support ongoing initiatives by the Ministry of Petroleum Resources to provide alternate energy source to Nigerians through activation of CNG filling stations for motorists across the country.

Speaking on TV, NNPC Managing Director, Mallam Mele Kyari, confirmed that the “National Oil Company has already keyed into the gas penetration agenda as championed by the Minister of Petroleum Resources.”
Kyari said that NNPC will continue to work with other stakeholders in the industry to provide viable alternatives to petrol in Nigeria with a focus on cleaner and cheaper sources of fuel.

Last week Nigeria’s Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) ordered 9,000 petrol stations across the country to install natural gas fuelling equipment as the Nigerian Government wants to boost the share of natural gas in transport.

As the DPR begins the audit of petrol stations, it has demanded retailers to support the use of LPG, CNG, LNG and Autogas as alternative fuels for Nigerians. This is part of Federal Government’s National Gas Expansion Programme (NGEP) which aims at giving customers a cheaper and cleaner alternative to petrol for transportation.
