Nigeria LPG Association holds international conference, exhibition
... partners NLNG, NNPC on 15 years of uninterrupted domestic LPG supply
The Nigeria LPG Association (NLPGA) – the umbrella body for all stakeholders in the LPG industry will be partnering with Nigeria LNG Limited (NLNG) and NNPC Limited to commemorate its 15th anniversary of the Domestic Supply Obligation Programme with an international Conference and Exhibition.
The event which holds from Tuesday October 25 to 26 in Lagos is themed; “15 years of Domestic LPG Supply Intervention: Looking Back and Looking Forward,”.
NLNG’s Domestic Supply Intervention, according to Felix Ekundayo, President of the NLPGA, created the much-needed foundation for what has grown over 1000 per cent, from a 60,000MT market in 2007 into a 1.3MT market and is still growing. One of the most important hallmarks of the intervention the NLPGA president said is that it drastically reduced supply disruptions and birthed several indigenous companies in Nigeria’s LPG market.
