Nigeria’s domestic gas penetration aspirations have received a major boost as the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, and the Kaduna State Government have signed a Memorandum of Understanding , MoU, for utilisation and expansion of gas supply in the state.

Speaking at the MoU Execution Ceremony, which held Thursday at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim House in Kaduna, the Group Managing Director of NNPC, Mallam Mele Kyari, described the moment as yet another watershed in the Federal Government’s ‘Decade of Gas’ initiative which is aimed at utilising the nation’s abundant gas resources to power the nation’s economy through a number of strategic gas expansion projects such as the ongoing OB3 and Ajaokuta-Kaduna-Kano , AKK, Gas Pipeline Projects.

The event, which was facilitated by the Gas Aggregation Company of Nigeria, GACN, would ensure long-term involvement and support of Kaduna State Government and key gas sector players such as the Nigerian Gas Company, NGC; the Nigerian Gas Marketing Company, NGMC; and virtual pipeline companies to provide gas supply assurance to industries within the state on competitive terms.
