ABUJA—IN its efforts to address the worsening trend of gas flaring in the country, the Senate Committee on Gas Resources will meet with top officials of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC and its subsidiaries, International Oil Companies, IOCs as well as other oil majors tomorrow.

The meeting, which will be investigative in nature, will guide the committee with insights into its proposed bill seeking amendment of laws on gas flaring in the country.
The committee’s chairman, Senator Albert Akpan, told Vanguard, in Abuja, that the outcome of the investigative meeting will bring about the desired positive change in the oil and gas sector.
He said the meeting would be followed by the committee’s visit to gas flaring countries such as Norway and the Netherlands.
