Greenville LNG Commences CNG Plant Construction in Kaduna
By Adedapo Adesanya
A liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) production and distribution company, Greenville LNG Limited, has announced the installation of a state-of-the-art Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) facility in Kaduna state.
In a statement on Monday, the Abuja-based company said the strategic initiative aims to provide a sustainable and environmentally friendly fueling solution for the transportation sector in Kaduna State.
Once fully operational, the CNG facility will cater to a wide range of vehicles, including tricycles popularly known as Keke NAPEP, buses, and other small vehicles, offering them a cleaner and cost-effective alternative to traditional fossil fuels.
“By embracing CNG as a transportation fuel, Greenville LNG seeks to contribute significantly to reducing emissions and promoting a greener future for Kaduna State’s transportation landscape,” it said in the statement.
This is coming as the federal government proposed mass deployment of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) vehicles to all states for public transportation in order to cushion the effect of fuel subsidies removal.
“We will also pursue the mass deployment of CNG-powered vehicles and establishment of autogas conversion plants/kits in all States in the short-term vigorously,” Vice President Kashimu Shettima said at the fourth meeting of the National Economic Council (NEC) at the State House Executive Council Chambers last week.
Greenville LNG, apart from its LNG business, also provides cryogenic storage tanks to larger customers so that adequate stocks can be maintained for smooth operations.
Greenville is participating in various special projects, such as supplying LNG to power plants in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno and Sokoto state.
The gas firm inaugurated the same CLNG infrastructure in Nassarawa state on July 12.
