139 Firms Shortlisted To Commercialise Gas Flaring in Nigeria


The Chief Executive of Nigeria’s Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission has said that as part of plans to reduce carbon emissions, Nigeria has shortlisted 139 companies for the next stage of the country’s gas flaring commercialisation programme.

Nigeria’s minister of state for petroleum resources said in September 2022 that plans are at an advanced stage to commercialise gas that is burned from its oil fields to help cut off about 15 million tonnes of carbon emissions from the atmosphere.

Gbenga Komolafe, Nigeria Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission chief executive, said in a statement that out of the 300 companies that applied, 139 have been shortlisted to move on to the next stage of the programme.
