Group plans for 2MMT cooking gas consumption as price remain out of hand

Just as the prices of filling different sizes of cylinders in Nigeria have remained over and above the reach of many Nigerians, the Nigeria Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association (NLPGA) has said it is targeting a consumption level of two million metric tonnes of LPG, also known as cooking gas, in the country in the next two years. The NLPGA said this in a statement where it described as a major milestone the achievement of a consumption level of over one million MT of cooking gas in 2020.

It said, “The year 2020 will be remembered for so many things, least of all, a once in a century global pandemic. But, within this year also, Nigeria’s LPG sector achieved a major milestone with the laudable achievement of exceeding the one million metric tonne per annum mark for gas consumption. “As at December 30, 2020, LPG coastal supplies broke the 1 million tonnes barrier for the first time in Nigeria’s history and Nigeria being the first country to hit this mark in West Africa sub-region.” According to the association, other milestones achieved included incremental volumes from inland producers as well as the inauguration of two major inland production plants. The statement said, “These are significant achievements in spite of a COVID-19 ravaged economy, global economic downturn and numerous business environment bottlenecks.
