Nigeria must pay more attention to gas development - NLNG
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.”
