Asiko, a leading provider of clean energy solutions, has launched a 300MT Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) depot in Utesi, Benin. The multi-product gas depot, which promises to improve gas availability and distribution in the region, was commissioned on the 15th of September, 2023.
The LPG/CNG gas depot is situated in Utesi, Benin, and is poised to become a hub for a wide range of gas products. Under its licensing agreement, the depot is authorised to store Propane, LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas), CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). Currently, it stores LPG and CNG, with plans for future development to enable the storage of LNG in the near future. The 300MT depot, the biggest in Benin, marks an added step towards contributing to a clean energy future and the realisation of the Federal Government’s decade of gas initiative.
This LPG/CNG depot is not just a beacon of progress for the energy sector; it also carries a profound impact on the local community. The depot is expected to generate over 100 job direct and indirect job opportunities, contributing significantly to the economic welfare of the region. The creation of these jobs underscores Asiko’s commitment to empowering and uplifting the economic activities of its host community.
