Shell supplies gas to 90 industries, targets Bayelsa, Lagos others in 2018
Shell Nigeria Gas (SNG) has supplied gas to 90 industries in order to reduce gas flaring and enhance industrialisation in Nigeria, Vanguard reports.
The Country chair of Shell companies in Nigeria and Managing Director of The Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited, Mr. Osagie Okunbor said that: “SNG currently supplies natural gas to 90 industrial and commercial customers in the states where it operates, driving industrialisation and its positive chain effects in addition to direct internal generated revenues in these states.”
“These benefits have led Bayelsa, Lagos and Ondo States to express interest for SNG to expand its distribution network into their states. In 2017, SNG distributed an average of 41 MMscf/d of natural gas compared to 33 MMscf/d in 2016 to industries and factories in Ogun, Abia, and Rivers States of Nigeria,” he added.
