Abuja -- The Nigeria LNG Limited, NLNG, has said the country must pay more attention and be deliberate about the developmen­t of its gas resources, for economic growth.

The Managing Director and

Chief Executive Officer of NLNG, Tony Attah, said this in Abuja at the 20th Nigerian Oil and Gas Conference, NOG, 2021, with the theme, "Fortifying the Nigerian oil and gas industry for economic stability and growth".

Attah explained that the opportunit­y for the utilisatio­n of oil and gas resources will not last for ever, owing to the availabili­ty and sustainabi­lity of renewable energy sources such as hydrogen.

Represente­d by the General Manager, External Relations and Sustainabl­e Developmen­t at NLNG, Mrs. Eyono FatayiWill­iams, Attah said investment­s targeted at unlocking natural gas utilisatio­n must be seen as strategic.

He said: "Now is the time for action. Nigeria must not stop at this point and must pay more attention on gas developmen­t and be very deliberate about what to do for the needed change.

"We must dream of the future we want and leverage on the possibilit­ies of more volumes of Train-7, 8, 9 and far beyond.

"The opportunit­y will not last for ever. Hydrogen is another prominent source in the energy mix of the future and hydrogen is gotten from water.”
