Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State will play host later on this week in Owerri to the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva, and the five southeast governors as part of a stakeholders’ forum to discuss boosting the manufacturing and trade sectors in the South East through improved gas utilisation.


The event will focus on the country’s plans to maximise its 203.16 trillion cubic feet (TCF) of gas.


In a statement yesterday, the Gas Aggregation Company of Nigeria Limited (GACN) revealed that the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) is backing the event and that the Group Managing Director of NNPC, Mele Kyari, will lead stakeholders in the country’s oil and gas sector to the meeting.


The Federal Government has estimated Nigeria’s total gas reserves as of January 1 at 203.16 trillion cubic feet (TCF). This represents a marginal increase of 1.16tcf or 0.57 per cent from the 202tcf recorded in 2019.


The reserves are made up of 100.69tcf of Associated Gas (AG) and 102.47TCF of Non-Associated Gas (NAG).


The Chairman of GACN, Mansur Sambo, said the forum would provide stakeholders the opportunity to proffer solutions to the problems of the South East’s industrial sector.

Meanwhile the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of GACN, Olalekan Ogunleye, said the organisation is happy with the opportunity to collaborate with the South East business community and stakeholders to boost the economic development of the  region and country.


Over 500 companies are expected to be represented at the event.
