NNPC Set To Tackle Cooking Gas Shortage

The West African Gas Ltd (WAGL), a joint venture company of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Sahara Energy, has begun moves to address the challenges inhibiting the supply of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), otherwise known as cooking gas.

NNPC Group Managing Director, Dr. Maikanti Baru, who spoke at a pre-naming ceremony dinner in South Korea, said he was delighted that the venture, established in 2014, had begun yielding fruits.

Baru said the milestone was a boost to the LPG business in Nigeria, even as he named the ships after the spouses of the sponsors, often referred to as “godmother of the vessels.” In this case, the spouses of the GMD and COO, Gas and Power, will perform the naming.
