Nipco Launches Autogas Dispensing Station in Abuja

An automobile compressed natural gas station, to be located in Kubwa, Abuja, has been announced by Nipco Gas Limited. It would provide reasonably priced and environmentally friendly transportation fuel.

According to the company, the station started operating over the weekend. This is a confirmation of the company’s goal to guarantee widespread availability of CNG for cars across the nation.

“As the nation grapples with the challenges of fuel expenses and environmental sustainability, and seeks cleaner energy alternatives, Nipco Gas is at the forefront of driving positive change in the country’s energy landscape,” the company said in a statement on Sunday.

It said, “This newly commissioned station exemplifies the company’s mission to drive positive change in the country’s transport sector. The organization believes that the path to a more sustainable future begins with innovative efforts. The opening of the Kubwa AutoCNG Station demonstrates our commitment to action.”

According to the firm, auto compressed natural gas (CNG) is positioned as an environmentally friendly mode of transportation because of its low cost and significantly lower carbon emissions when compared to traditional fuels.

According to Nagendra Verma, Managing Director of Nipco Gas Ltd., the company is dedicated to making CNG more accessible across Nigeria.

Verma was optimistic about the advantages of increased CNG use for the economy and the environment.

In an attempt to establish gas as Nigeria’s energy transition fuel, the federal government has been attempting to increase the country’s availability of CNG.

The government is using the CNG initiative as a calculated move to reduce Nigeria’s dependency on traditional fuels like gasoline and diesel and diversify the country’s energy mix.

It aims to take advantage of CNG’s potential as a more affordable and environmentally friendly fuel for use in cars all around the nation.
