Nigeria Moves To Adopt Alternative Fuel For Vehicles

Joseph Bakare

The Federal Government has inaugurated an Autogas and Natural Gas Vehicles Committee to facilitate the shift to gas as an alternative fuel for vehicles in Nigeria.

The autogas vehicles would be powered by Liquified Petroleum Gas, while those grouped as natural gas vehicles would use Compressed Natural Gas as alternative fuel.

These were contained in a document put together during a meeting between the Committee of the National Gas Expansion Programme and stakeholders in the oil and gas industry.

The NGEP was inaugurated by the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, in January 2020 to boost domestic utilisation of natural gas in the short and medium term.

The ANGV is a sub-committee of the NGEP and their task is to promote natural gas usage in Nigeria thereby creating alternative fuel choices for Nigerians.

The NGEP was charged to reinforce and expand domestic gas supply to stimulate demand through an efficient and effective mobilisation and utilisation of all available assets, resources and infrastructure.

The chairman of the committee, Mohammed Ibrahim, in his submission to the gathering of major CNG and LNG stakeholders, said increased utilisation of CNG/LNG would provide a conducive environment for investors.

He said CNG/LNG could be employed to power passenger cars and city buses.

Ibrahim said the gas expansion programme committee met with major fuel station owners in Abuja to discuss modalities for inclusion of CNG dispensing facilities in their stations.

    level of a few natural ingredients, in natual skin care cream, simply so they
    could claim their method is natural. Paying high costs with good hope,
    it’s easy to usually do not understand the promised improvement you are interested in after a couple of months of
    diligent use. A special kind of sea kelp extract from Japan called
    phytessence wakame is also noted for its ability to prevent
    wrinkles along with other such ravages of time skin.
