The General Manager, External Relations of the Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd, Dr. Kudo Eresia-Eke disclosed in Lagos that the proposed NLNG trains seven and eight would reduce gas flaring in Nigeria to zero level, Vanguard reports.
Eresia-Eke disclosed in Lagos that the completion and operations of trains one to six have reduced gas flaring from over 60 per cent to about 20 per cent in the nation. According to him, the nation needs more investments in LNG to further reduce gas flaring while harnessing gas for domestic utilisation and export.
He indicated that it was unpatriotic for the House of Representatives to amend the NLNG Act, put in place to protect the company from undue distractions. Eresia-Eke said that NLNG has taken the battle to the Senate in order to reverse the recent amendment of the NLNG Act by the House of Representatives. The move is based on the need to remove hurdles, capable of hindering the implementation of the nation’s $25 billion trains seven and eight project.
