NIPCO Gas Limited, a leading player in the Nigerian energy sector, has commissioned a state-of-the-art Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) facility in Oron, Akwa Ibom state.
The development is poised to bolster auto CNG support for Daughter-Booster Stations in the South-South region of Nigeria.
The facility’s inauguration marks a strategic move by NIPCO Gas Limited to enhance the accessibility and utilization of CNG in the region, providing a cleaner and more sustainable energy source for vehicles.
With a focus on promoting eco-friendly transportation solutions, the initiative is expected to contribute to reducing carbon emissions and air pollution.
In collaboration with NNPC Limited, NIPCO Gas announced that it is actively working on expanding its network of CNG stations across Nigeria.
This expansion effort aims to create a wider footprint of CNG refuelling stations, ensuring greater accessibility and convenience for consumers nationwide.
A statement from the company read:
”Currently, NIPCO Gas Limited oversees a network of 14 operational CNG stations strategically positioned throughout Nigeria.
”These stations play a crucial role in facilitating the seamless conversion of vehicles to operate on CNG.
”We have successfully converted over 7,000 vehicles to CNG, aligning with global efforts to transition towards more sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation options.”
As the company continues to expand its CNG infrastructure in partnership with NNPC Limited, it is expected to play a pivotal role in driving the adoption of CNG as an alternative fuel and contributing to Nigeria’s sustainable energy future.
Recall that in August, the Nigerian government announced that it has partnered with NIPCO Gas Limited to construct 35 CNG stations across Nigeria.
So far, over 7,000 gasoline and diesel-powered vehicles have been converted to run on CNG in Nigeria by NIPCO.
