Since 2019, the Federal Government has been pushing for the usage of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in automobiles to diversify and optimise the application of Nigeria’s gas resources.
In August, Nigeria’s Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, ordered chief executive of departments and agencies under the Federal Ministry of Petroleum Resources to convert all their official vehicles to run on autogas.
The Federal Ministry of Petroleum subsequently announced that filling stations will begin to dispense auto-gas before the end of September 2020.
In view of the declaration, OTL Africa Downstream in collaboration with the Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN) will on Tuesday host the Nigerian CNG webinar to examine the potential of CNG as an alternative fuel for automobiles in Nigeria.
The session will allow stakeholders in the gas value chain to address issues around policy framework, opportunities, infrastructure, sustainability and usability of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) as an alternative fuel for vehicles.
Speakers have been drawn from across core stakeholders in the industry among which include; Mr Tunji Oyebanji, Chairman, Major Oil marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN); Mr Emeka Akabogu, Chairman, Oil Trading and Logistics Africa Downstream; Dr Mohammed Ibrahim, Chairman, National Gas Expansion Committee; Ministry of Petroleum Resources and Mr Huub Stokman, Managing Director, OVH Energy Marketing Limited.
Others include Mr Taji Ogbe, Executive Secretary, Nigerian Gas Association (NGA); Mr Alex Tiamiyu, Chairman, MOMAN LPG Committee; Mr Mike Oseh, Program Executive, Axxela; Mr Sabir Ahmad, DGM, NIPCO Gas Limited; while Mr Isaac Anyaogu, Assistant Editor and Head, Energy Desk, BusinessDay Media Limited will moderate the session.
