The Federal Government is planning to open micro Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plants across several communities to address the rising prices of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in the country.
Chairman, Natural Gas Expansion Programme (NGEP), Dr Mohammed Ibrahim, made this known at the 2022 Annual General Meeting of Nigerian Association of Liquefied Petroleum Gas Marketers (NALPGAM) in Port Harcourt.
The theme of the event was “LPG Sustainability and Contemporary Issues.”
Ibrahim said the Federal Government was fully focused on ensuring that LPG was made available to Nigerians and at an affordable rate in no distant future.
“So, we are now building micro LNG plants in every part of this country because we want to demystify LNG. In this programme, we can have a 4,000 mmbtu LNG plant right in any village where you have a flare site. In the next 12 months, we are going to open a micro LNG plant in Owazza community in Abia – producing LPG right in the village,” he said.
