POWERGAS has received the prestigious “Best Compressed and Liquefied Natural Gas Production Company” of the Year Award for 2016 from The “Institute for Government Research Leadership Technology” (IGRLT).
The award is bestowed to an internationally recognised organization that is performance-driven, innovative and contributes positively to the economic growth and prosperity of Nigeria following an intensive selection process.
The 2016 African Governance and Corporate Leadership Awards Ceremony was held in Abuja, with influencers from the Oil, Gas & Power Industry attending.
The IGRLT recognised Powergas as the pioneer in the off pipeline gas distribution network in Nigeria, with both gas compression and distribution capabilities and commended them for continued investment in the industry.
Powergas is not only the largest, but also the fastest growing CNG supplier in Nigeria, having doubled its client base in the past year.
Deepak Khilnani, Chairman, Clean Energy Group and CEO of Powergas, thanked IGRLT for recognising the company’s efforts in the CNG and mini-LNG industry and also congratulated the Powergas team for continued hard work, saying: “We have an exciting phase of growth over the next two years with plans to produce enough CNG and LNG to generate 500 MW of electricity at power plants across Nigeria where the pipeline does not reach.” While receiving the award on behalf of the company, Mr. Aloy Duru, Director, Powergas, said: “Powergas is committed to Nigeria’s CNG & LNG development and we will continue to invest not only in additional compression and liquefaction stations, but also innovative customer solutions. Our aim is to get high quality gas to you safely at competitive rates.”
