The Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas Company (NLNG) Limited, has taken its battle against the amendment of the NLNG Act by the House of Representatives to the Senate, Vanguard reports.

The essence of the interface with the Senate is to get the House of Representatives to reverse the amendment. The move, which is supported by the shareholders of the company, such as the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC); Shell Petroleum Development Company Limited, Total Exploration and Producing Company and Agip, is based on the need to remove hurdles capable of hindering the implementation of the nation’s $25 billion trains seven and eight project.

General Manager, External Relations Division of NLNG Limited, Dr. Kudo Eresia-Eke, indicated in a telephone interview, yesterday, that the management of the company has concluded plans to meet the senators this week. He said the company had also scheduled to meet with relevant persons and institutions in the executive arm of government to let them understand why the present amendment should be stopped.
