We attended the 13th Nigeria LPG Association (NLPGA) 13th conference and exhibition at the PTDF towers in Abuja, where industry leaders gathered to discuss the theme, “LPGas: Saving Nigeria from the Brink; Gas for Vehicles, Generators, and Agriculture.”

Our subsidiaries, Gas Terminalling and Asiko Power were live at the exhibition grounds to showcase and highlight our tangible projects that exemplify our dedication to transforming the energy landscape.

A standout initiative exhibited at the event was our recent autogas trial study, an innovative project, which involved the conversion of both vehicles and keke napep to run on autogas. During the conference, we had the privilege of sharing the details of this groundbreaking project with the Minister of State, Petroleum Resources (Gas), Hon. Ekperipe Ekpo, with our GM of Operations Busayo Fabunmi (R.Engr, PMP®) leading the charge. In the company of the Minister was our Managing Director and President of NLPGA, Felix Ekundayo and Chairman of the Nigerian Gas Expansion Programme, Dr. Muhammed Ibrahim.

The Group’s GM of Operations, Busayo Fabunmi (R.Engr, PMP®) also anchored an insightful breakout session on autogas conversions (keke napep and generator) which shed more light on the conversion process and key elements required to power engines on gas.

This theme of this year’s conference was incredibly relevant and timely given the recent removal of petrol subsidy in the country. Autogas has now emerged as a preferred and sustainable alternative, offering both economic and environmental benefit

As advocates for cleaner energy solutions, our commitment runs deep. We take pride in being at the forefront of initiatives that not only align with the conference theme but also contribute to the overall sustainability and progress of Nigeria’s energy sector.
