Axxela has successfully completed an 18km gas pipeline in Nigeria.
The company, through its subsidiary Transit Gas Nigeria and in partnership with the Nigerian Gas Marketing Company (NGMC), built the pipeline system in Ogun State.
Gas has now been able to be delivered through this pipeline to Rite Foods Limited. The pipeline has a total capacity of 150 million standard cubic feet per day.
Axxela CEO Bolaji Osunsanya highlighted the company’s commitment to growth and industrialisation.
He said: “This venture is in firm alignment with our near-to-long term market expansion strategy, and emphasises our push to broaden our asset portfolio and strengthen our market play within the gas sector.
“Axxela and the marketing company pioneered gas distribution in the Greater Lagos area, and our present positioning enables us significantly increase our industrial and commercial client footprint across the south-western corridor.”
NGMC managing director Faruk Usman added: “As part of our strategy, we are delighted to pioneer and implement initiatives with private players, which is a clear indication of our willingness to collaborate and ensure the success of Nigeria’s Gas Expansion Programme.”
