Shell Nigeria Gas and the Oyo State Government have signed an agreement to develop a gas supply and distribution infrastructure that will deliver gas to industrial and commercial users in the state.

As disclosed in a statement released by Shell Nigeria’s Media Relations Manager, Abimbola Essien-Nelson, the agreement outlines plans for SNG to construct and operate a gas distribution network across Oyo State for a period of 20 years. This network will facilitate the delivery of gas to various customers throughout the state.

The project will commence with the construction of gas distribution infrastructure spanning a 15-kilometre pipeline route, with provisions for expansion to accommodate the delivery of up to 60 million standard cubic feet of gas per day across Oyo State.

At the signing ceremony, Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde hailed the project as a pivotal catalyst for development, aligning with the state’s strategic goals of fostering innovation and industrialization.

Governor Makinde expressed his readiness to collaborate with additional companies and organisations to facilitate the execution of vital projects that will enhance socio-economic progress in Oyo State.

In his remarks, the Managing Director of SNG, Ralph Gbobo, emphasised the agreement’s significance in bolstering economic activities within Nigeria by supplying industries and manufacturers with natural gas, a more reliable, cost-efficient, and environmentally friendly source of energy.”

He explained: “The gas distribution project will be a game-changer in the industrialization drive of the Oyo State Government, help boost internally generated revenue, and result in more job opportunities. For SNG, the project is a milestone in our effort to continue growing the energy supply to businesses in Nigeria in line with Nigeria’s ambition to drive progress on the back of natural gas availability across Nigeria under the Decade of Gas initiative.”
