NIPCO Plc has thrown its weight behind the Federal Government’s agenda to grow the Liquefied Petroleum Gas sub-sector in the country.
Managing Director of the company, Sanjay Teotia, who said this at the 8th annual international conference and exhibition organised by Nigerian Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association (NLPGA) in Abuja, also promised continuous and deliberate efforts in “supporting government’s genuine desire to make LPG domestic cooking fuel of choice among the populace.”
He said his company diversified in the gas realm in 2009 with the inauguration of a state of the art LPG plant in Lagos with a total storage capacity of 4,800MT spread across three spheres and a three point loading gantry. In 2017, the company, the helmsman of NIPCO said, “we improved on the storage capacity and other LPG infrastructures in a bid to meet growing LPG stakeholders’ interest.”
He added that the company commissioned the biggest LPG single sphere in Africa with a capacity of 5,600MT and increased the loading arms in the gantry to five in a bid to ease loading of trucks for onward distribution of the product to all the nooks and cranny of the country.
