THE federal government has said that its cylinder recirculation model is aimed at improving safety and reducing cost. Brenda Ataga, project coordinator/manager LPG, National Gas Expansion Programme, Office of the minister of state for petroleum resources , said that the model would increase usage of Liquefied Petroleum Gas, also known as cooking gas in the country.

Ataga, who made the assertion during a webinar organised by Oil Trading Logistics, described how government and stakeholders could harness Nigeria’s gas opportunities post-COVID -19.

She said the model, which was announced by Timipre Sylva, minister of state for petroleum resource, was part of the strategic framework for the implementation of the National Gas Policy.

Dayo Adeshina, programme manager, National LPG Expansion and Implementation Plan, Office of the Vice President, also noted that LPG penetration in Nigeria is still at five percent.
