A new 18-kilometre gas pipeline has been launched in Ogun State.
Speaking at the inauguration, Axxela Chief Executive Officer Bolaji Osunsanya said: “Axxela/NGMC pioneered gas distribution in the greater Lagos area, and our current positioning enables us to increase our industrial and commercial client footprint across the south-western corridor.
“By providing the gas advantage, we are enabling the development of self-sustaining industrial clusters to bolster Nigeria’s industrialisation and socio-economic empowerment.”
The project is under the Sagamu Gas Distribution Zone (SGDZ), a joint venture between NGMC and TGNL (the NGMC/TGNL JV), which began operations in 2019 by delivering gas to growing industrial users.
On the NGMC/TGNL JV and the new pipeline grid, NGMC Managing Director Faruk Usman said: “The SGDZ will contribute to the development of Sagamu and its environs by facilitating industrial growth, cleaner energy generation and fostering community employment through gas availability.”
