By Adedapo Adesanya

The Naira strengthened against the US Dollar by N1 or 0.24 per cent at the Investors and Exporters (I&E) window of the foreign exchange (FX) market on Wednesday, May 25.

According to data from the FMDQ Securities Exchange, the exchange rate of the Naira to the Dollar was N418.00/$1 as against the N418.00/$1 it was sold in the previous session.

This happened despite a spike in the demand for forex at the official exchange window by 24.4 per cent or $21.27 million to $108.33 million from the previous day’s turnover of $87.06 million.

Also, the value of the local currency to the greenback appreciated yesterday at the peer-to-peer (P2P) market segment by N1 or 0.16 per cent to N616/$1 from the preceding session’s N617/$1.

In the same vein, the Nigerian currency put up a better performance against the Pound Sterling at the interbank segment, where the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) sells the greenback to commercial banks. The domestic currency gained 75 kobo during the session to quote at N519.02/£1 compared with Tuesday’s closing rate of N519.77/£1 and against the Euro, it appreciated by N2.70 gain to N442.95/€1 from N445.65/€1.

Meanwhile, the crypto market was in bearish territory yesterday on the back of the continued worry about the global market, with Solana (SOL) going down by 3.9 per cent to trade at $47.84, followed by Litecoin (LTC) which lost 3.6 per cent to close at $68.17.

Binance Coin (BNB) recorded a 3.4 per cent depreciation to trade at $332.93, Ethereum (ETH) declined by 3.2 per cent to quote at $1,942.54, Cardano (ADA) depreciated by 2.5 per cent to finish at $0.5134, Dogecoin (DOGE) went down 1.4 per cent to sell at $0.0827, Bitcoin (BTC) lost 1.1 per cent to trade at $29,775.96, Ripple (XRP) depreciated by 0.9 per cent to sell at $0.4075, while the US Dollar Tether (USDT) retreated by 0.01 per cent to $0.999.

However, TerraUSD (UST), which has seen turmoil in the last three weeks, continued its recovery ahead of a planned relaunch soon and yesterday, it chalked up 47.6 per cent to settle at $0.1027.

Hyde Energy Advocates Ways to Reduce Cost of LPG

Published

Domestic LPG

By Adedapo Adesanya

Nigeria’s leading energy trading company, Hyde Energy, has proffered strong recommendations for making Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) affordable and available in Nigeria.

This was discussed at the just-concluded 2nd West Africa LPG Expo & NLPGA Summit 2022 held in Lagos themed Energizing the Future: LPG as a Sustainable Fuel in African Economies as part of efforts to address the sector’s need for significant investments in infrastructure.

The conference, which has continued to gather momentum in Nigeria, is a platform for industry players to engage both indigenous and international stakeholders to attain insight into the LPG market and network with more than 3,000 delegates across the value chain.

The first day of the two-day conference featured a panel discussion where the Chief Executive of Hyde Energy, Mr Oladimeji Edwards, encouraged more collaboration amongst relevant stakeholders in the industry to develop necessary measures that can improve infrastructural development in the sector to reduce the cost of LPG and increase supply.

“To reduce the cost of LPG, it is very important to build infrastructure to a captive market, to take it from truck to skid, to dispensing unit, all the way down to the cylinders, and ultimately at some point, the next generation will reticulate as part of standard code for construction at which point in time, we would have had ample supply of LPG distribution across the country,” he said.

He further revealed that for infrastructural development to come into place, there is a need for all hands to be on deck and show the will to make it happen.

Mr Edwards stated that Nigeria has tremendous gas deposits but there is an inadequate infrastructure around gas resources.

“To reduce imports, adequate investment is required. Gas suppliers are importing LPG, paying in US Dollars, and due to inflation and devaluation this affects retail prices, but with good infrastructure, I assure you that we will have an enabling environment for investment to thrive and everyone will be happy,” he advocated.

Mr Edwards commended the effort of the NLPGA to bring together industry stakeholders to share ideas on contentious topics and share strategies to help Nigeria’s LPG market unlock its incredible potential saying, “this is a brilliant platform for relevant stakeholders in the industry. It is a great event which brings in international and indigenous experts to exchange ideas, opinions, trends and outlook for the future.”

Nigeria is one of the fastest-growing LPG markets in the world with more than 20 per cent average growth per annum for the past 10 years. In 2020, Nigeria recorded a national LPG consumption of 89.91 thousand MT (PPPRA, 2020), with a positive variance of 7.9 per cent above the targeted estimated figure.
