LPG: ‘We need constructive engagement with FG in 2014’-NLPGA boss

2013 has been described as a year that lots of attention was given to Liquefied Petroleum Gas, LPG also known as cooking gas, and the country’s preferred energy of choice. However, the attention is yet to hit national scale despite the comparative advantages LPG have over traditional fuel. In this interview, President of Nigeria Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association, NLPGA, Mr. Dayo Adeshina, outlined  the successes, challenges in 2013 and projections in 2014.

2013 Overview

In 2013, I took over as President in May. The market that we recorded last year was 150,000 tons and by the time you look at the other spare capacity that came,  we would have inched towards something much higher than that, but some of the data from that segment was sketchy. But in all, we did about 150,000 tons  in 2012 and we were competing with the figures in 2013, and we are hoping that we will surpass 2012.
