Nigeria Ranked Among Africa’s Lowest LPG Consumers

The Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, has said that Nigeria is one of Africa’s lowest consumers of Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) notwithstanding its current national LPG consumption rate of 110,000 metric tonnes (MT) per annum.
Alison-Madueke, who spoke at the opening of the LPG Strategic Workshop and Conference in Abuja, said growth of the LPG market in Nigeria was a critical component of the nation’s gas master plan which it launched in 2010.
The minister who was represented by the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Abdulkadir Musa, expressed an urgent need for Nigeria to open up the LPG market for improved energy utilisation and economic growth.
