On Thursday, August 3, 2023, the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) announced a cooperation with NIPCO Gas Limited for the deployment and delivery of Compressed Natural Gas Stations across Nigeria. CNG is another alternative fuel used in vehicles, and its popularity has grown since the subsidy on gasoline was eliminated.

The stations would service around 200,000 vehicles daily, lowering the cost of fuel and transportation for Nigerians. The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has stated that it is committed to decreasing carbon emissions and offering cheaper alternative fuel in Nigeria.

NNPC highlighted NIPCO as one of the companies that will provide an effective partnership for the establishment of CNG gas stations across the country.

Kyari stated: “As part of NNPCL’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and providing motorists with a cheaper alternative fuel, the company is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Nipco Gas Limited to develop Compressed Natural Gas stations.”

According to Mele Kyari, Group Chief Executive Officer of NNPCL, President Bola Tinubu has urged the business to acquire alternative fuel to mitigate the effects of the removal of petrol subsidies.

According to Punch, Kyari stated that the agreement would result in the construction of 35 CNG stations across the country.
