To make the supply of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) or cooking gas easy, the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Limited (NLNG) and the international auditing firm, KPMG have carried out studies to find out what makes supply of the commodity cumbersome in the country, The Nation has learnt.
NLNG’s immediate past Managing Director, and Vice President, Safety and Environment (S&E), Shell Upstream International Leadership Team, Babs Omotowa, told The Nation that the studies have been completed and that the gas company was working with the government to remove all bottlenecks to make the commodity readily available in the country.
Omotowa said the Nigeria LNG carried out study on the issue and hired KPMG last year to carry out its own study, adding that the auditing firm has submitted its findings, which are currently being worked on.
He said: “At NLNG, we have carried out a study, we also appointed KPMG late last year to carry out a study on what needs to be done to unblock all of these challenges and they have submitted their report.
