Cabal hijacked Subsidy regime — NNPC BossBy Michael Eboh

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Saturday, said it has signed an agreement with Sterling Exploration and Energy Production Company, SEEPCO, for the development and commercialization of gas from Oil Mining Lease, OML, 143 that could help reduce gas flaring in the country.

In a statement in Abuja, Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Malam Mele Kyari, described the execution of the deal as a great milestone as well as a testament to NNPC’s commitment to facilitating the nation’s transformation into a gas-powered economy.

He said the deal would not only help reduce gas flaring and its environmental hazards, but would also promote gas production and utilization in the domestic market.

Kyari also commended SEEPCO for its unwavering commitment to gas development and commercialization in the country which has led to the establishment of a Special Purpose Vehicle that would help expand gas utilization in the country as a cleaner, cheaper and more reliable alternative form of energy.

On his part, Chairman of SEEPCO, Mr. Tony Chukwueke, described the deal as an essential partnership that would help the company fulfill the pledge it made to support the efforts of the Nigerian government to eliminate gas flaring by monetizing it.

He commended NNPC and Kyari for ensuring the execution of the agreement which he described as central to the achievement of the company’s cardinal objective of boosting the production of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), condensate and dry gas for the Nigerian market.

Chukwueke added that the company had already invested about $600 million for that purpose.
