Nigeria’s gas demand to jump by 50%, says NLNG

Gas demand in Nigeria will increase by 50 per cent in the next 30 years, according to the Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas Limited.
The Managing Director of NLNG Limited, Dr Phillips Mshelbila, while delivering his address at the 13th edition of the Nigerian Gas Association International Conference in Abuja, said the country’s gas demand was growing in tandem with its population.
“It is no news that Nigeria has gas reserves of 209 trillion cubic feet but that would not pull Nigerians out of poverty if we do not do everything, we can bring it out of the ground, get it across to consumers and then use it to industrialisation our economy.
“Demand is growing and will continue to grow by 50 per cent in the next 30 years as the population grows.
Nigeria’s consumption of LPG has increased by over 2,500 per cent from 60,000 metric tons in 2007 to over 1.3 million/MT in 2021.
