The Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas Limited has expressed its commitment towards eliminating gas flaring in the country. Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of NLNG, Tony Attah, said the firm was at the forefront of deliberate efforts towards eliminating gas flaring in Nigeria.
Attah explained that the company had created a system that would re-utilise gases that would have otherwise been flared, noting that his organisation had reduced gas flaring by more than 65 percent. Attah spoke on Thursday at a workshop on the firm’s Train 7 project organised in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
He said, “We (NLNG) are the catalyst for eliminating gas flaring in Nigeria. Because of NLNG’s existence, we have created the sync for the gas, which otherwise should have been flared, to be gathered. We have helped to reduce gas flaring by more than 65%. Today, we are creating more opportunities for the upstream companies to gather whatever is left and we will take it off them.”
