Speaking at the signing ceremony between the Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA) and FEMADEC Energy Limited in Abuja, Authority Chief Executive (ACE), Engr Farouk Ahmed emphasized that NMDPRA will provide the enabling environment and support for the projects towards actualising the aspirations of the Federal Government of adopting gas as the transition fuel.

On his part, the Executive Director, Midstream and Downstream Gas Infrastructure Fund (MDGIF), Mansur Kuliya said the initiative is in line with the Presidential Compressed Natural Gas Initiative (PCNGI).

Kuliya explained that the signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Femadec Energy Limited will accelerate the deployment of compressed Natural Gas (CNG) infrastructure as a special palliative to lessen transportation cost for tertiary institutions and to introduce clean energy towards net zero agenda.
