Tinubu to Inaugurate CNG Conversion and Training Centre in Abuja

The National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) is set to launch its compressed natural gas (CNG) conversion, filling, reverse engineering, and training centre in Abuja.
Executive Vice-Chairman Khalil Halilu announced on Wednesday that President Bola Tinubu will inaugurate the facility on May 31.
Halilu emphasized NASENI’s commitment to the federal government’s ‘renewed hope’ agenda, focusing on sustainable energy alternatives and a clean energy ecosystem.
The NASENI-Portland CNG conversion and training centre, developed in partnership with Portland Gas Limited, aims to convert fossil fuel vehicles to CNG, a cleaner and more cost-effective alternative.
Equipped with cutting-edge technology and staffed by skilled professionals, the centre will ensure efficient and safe vehicle conversions, enhancing local expertise in CNG technology. It will also offer comprehensive training programs for technicians, engineers, and stakeholders, promoting the domestication of CNG system knowledge and the adoption of green energy solutions nationwide.
Halilu highlighted the centre as a transformative development for Nigeria’s energy sector, reflecting NASENI’s dedication to sustainable innovation and the development of home-grown technological and manufacturing capabilities. He noted that the initiative would reduce vehicular emissions, improve air quality, and support a healthier environment.
Additionally, the adoption of CNG is expected to lower fuel costs for consumers and create new job opportunities in Nigeria’s green energy sector.
