Buhari urges use of gas as fuel alternative

Sylva asked to work out prices of gas for vehicles



Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva, has said the National Gas Expansion Programme (NGEP) of the Federal Government will create two million jobs annually.

Sylva announced this on Tuesday during the virtual inauguration of the programme by President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja.

He said the introduction of gas for powering automobile and other engines was a step in the right direction as well as a cheaper and cleaner source of energy.

The gas products are: Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).

CNG is a cleaner alternative to gasoline and diesel fuels while autogas is the common name for LPG when used as fuel in internal combustion engines.

The LNG is a suitable option to power large, long distance trucks.

“It is very important to note that this shift to gas underscores Mr. President’s seriousness and determination in the development of Nigeria’ s vast gas resources.

“Under the directives of the President, we will continue to strengthen the gas value chain as it is vital to transforming the economy of our great nation.

“This initiative is envisaged to create 2 million jobs per annum, promote skills acquisition and enhance technology transfer in addition to growing the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP),” he said.

Sylva said the government was focused on delivering sustainable energy while ensuring gas availability and accessibility across the country.

This, he said, would boost gas-based industrialisation and promote economic diversification.

To ensure seamless implementation of the programme, Sylva said: “As part of rollout strategy, which Mr. President is unveiling today, selected stations across all 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) will start the installation of facilities for gas products and conversion capabilities.

“The process is now well on course as you can see today,” he said.
