In a statement in Abuja, Chairman of the company, Professor Anthony Adegbulugbe, said the 12 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) extraction plant at Ikuru town, would be completed and commissioned for use by the second quarter of next year as fabrication had been completed in China.

Adegbulugbe, who was speaking in Port Harcourt, at a stakeholders’ workshop on corporate social responsibility and sustainability, organised for the company by Akassa Associate, said when completed, the plant would provide uninterrupted power supply to its host communities in Rivers State and its production facility.

He explained that Green Energy had embarked on the projects in fulfilment of its gas utilization strategy which will lead ultimately to zero gas flares from its field, adding that the company is committed to the welfare and development of the communities where they operate and would do anything necessary to sustain the good relationship already built with the communities.
