The Managing Director of the Nigeria Liquified Natural Gas (NLNG), Mr. Babs Omotowa, has said that despite the best efforts, the problem of gas flaring in beyond what they can handle alone.
Omotowa stated this on Wednesday when the management of NLNG paid a courtesy to the Chief of Naval Staff (CNS), Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ibas, at the Naval Headquarters (NHQ), Abuja.
He however disclosed that their efforts have reduced gas flaring significantly down from 65 per cent to 20 per cent.
“We don’t produce gas, we buy gas ourselves, by the coming in of Nigeria LNG we have been able to help to bring down gas flaring significantly. Before we came in we were flaring about 65 percent, since we have come in and the efforts we have been able to put together we have brought it down about 20 percent level.
“But the effort of gas flaring is beyond Nigeria NLG and that sort of issue will be taken upon by the authorities,” he said.
