The Nigerian Independent Petroleum Company (NIPCO) Plc has expressed its commitment to ensure that more vehicles run on gas in Nigeria to improve efficiency and guarantee cleaner environment.

The Managing Director of NIPCO Gas Limited (NGL), Mr. Sanjay Teotia, said the firm was committed to providing access to motorists to convert their cars to run on gas in furtherance of the federal government’s renewed initiative to reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

The Assistant General Manager, Corporate Affairs, NIPCO, Mr. Lawal Taofeek, in a statement, quoted Teotia to have said this on the sidelines of a gas utilisation forum organised recently by the Gas Aggregation Company of Nigeria (GACN) in Imo State.

Teotia, said NGL, which is a subsidiary of NIPCO Plc, was providing plethora of infrastructure to facilitate use of gas as the preferred energy source to motorists and industrial concerns.

He said the new drive of the federal government has been very apt in spurring the use of gas in transportation.

He said the company, which has so far fitted about 6,000 vehicles to run on gas since its inauguration in 2009, is pioneering gas-powered automobiles as viable alternatives to white products.

Teotia, noted that the initiative was conceptualised to offer alternative fuel to motorists as a result of the huge sums of money being expended on fuel subsidy, as it provides cheaper fuel and improve efficiency of vehicles.

He said the company has so far commissioned eight Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) filling stations in strategic locations and also established the biggest gas compression plant in West Africa in the country.
