NNPCL, NIPCO plan 35 CNG stations in Nigeria

By Eyo Nsima
NNPC Limited has signed a partnership agreement with NIPCO Gas Limited to establish modern Compressed Natural Gas, CNG, stations in different parts of Nigeria.
NNPCL Group CEO, Mr. Mele Kayri at a press briefing in Abuja said the stations would have the capacity to fuel 200,000 vehicles daily, adding that the initiative would reduce the cost of fueling vehicles by almost a third.
He said: “The project will be rolled out in phases. The first phase, comprising 21 CNG stations, will support intra-city transportation and be ready by the first quarter of 2024;
While the second phase, comprising 35 CNG stations, will support inter-city transformation and will be ready by the first quarter of 2025.
“To deepen and sustain this initiative, NNPC Ltd. has floated NNPC Prime LNG Limited for domestic LNG production and supply. NNPC is also collaborating with Miju Auto Gas, a leading CNG kit Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) based in India, to set up training and conversion centres to facilitate in-country conversion of vehicles from petrol to CNG”.
He said: “NIPCO Gas Limited is currently operating 14 CNG stations across Nigeria and has converted over 7,000 vehicles to run on CNG. NIPCO’s technical competency and field experience will bolster this initiative’s success and amplify its positive impact on the nation’s economy.
“This forward-thinking initiative will leverage Nigeria’s abundant natural gas resources to bring multiple benefits to Nigerians, including access to cheaper fuel, reduced cost of transportation, reduced carbon emission, create new business value chains and streams of job opportunities”.
Similarly, Managing Director, NIPCO Gas Limited, Mr. Nagendra Verma, said the company has a track record of CNG distribution in the country, adding that facilities will be in place to convert vehicles and make CNG available to motorists.
