Greenville LNG signs MoU with Nasarawa State government

Greenville Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Limited has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Nasarawa State government.

This is according to a statement by the company released on its official LinkedIn page on Wednesday, November 30.

According to the statement, Greenville LNG and Nasarawa State signed the MoU to allocate land for an LNG and L-CNG facility in Lafia, the state capital.

More details: The statement further highlighted the fact that the partnership will promote virtual gas supply options, especially in the North which is devoid of gas pipeline infrastructure. Greenville LNG wrote:

  • “Upon completion, the LNG and liquefied compressed natural gas (L-CNG) station will serve heavy-duty trucks and smaller vehicles like cars and keke napep. This will benefit local businesses and accelerate investment in Nasarawa State’s industrial and auto gas sectors.”

The backstory: In December 2020, Nigeria’s Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, referred to Greenville LNG as the first company in Nigeria to bring natural gas to industrial customers in the northern region and to the middle belt, in addition to customers in the south.
