Tinubu, Oborevwori Highlight Need to Enhance Energy Access in Nigeria

President Bola Tinubu and Delta State Governor Sheriff Oborevwori emphasized the importance of boosting energy access for Nigerians at the inauguration of the upgraded Nedogas Processing Plant and the Kwale Gas Gathering Facility in Kwale, Ndokwa West Local Government Area of Delta State.
Represented by the Minister of State for Gas, Ekperikpe Ekpo, President Tinubu reiterated the federal government’s commitment to leveraging Nigeria’s rich gas resources. He praised the Nedogas Development Company Limited (NDCL) and the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) for their role in the project.
Governor Oborevwori, represented by Deputy Governor Monday Onyeme, called for similar gas processing plants in other parts of Delta State to mitigate gas flaring. He noted that poor power supply costs Nigerian businesses approximately $29 billion annually, highlighting the critical need for improved energy availability and affordability.
Oborevwori pointed out that Nigeria’s gas reserves, totaling 208.83 trillion cubic feet, are the largest in Africa and ninth globally. He stressed that these projects would enhance energy supply and reduce the harmful effects of gas flaring on local communities.
Nedogas Limited chairman Emeka Ene highlighted the KGG Facility’s capacity of 300 million standard cubic feet per day as a milestone in innovation and strategic partnerships.
