Nigeria manufacturers have been advised to make use of domestic natural gas instead of diesel to power their facilities.
This was disclose during the business forum in Enugu, organised by Manufacturers Association of Nigeria, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu branch.
According to the director of sales, Powergas Nigeria, Mr Sumeet Singh, “the gas is much more cost effective and safer. It would be difficult to put an exact figure to the losses incurred daily by manufacturers. Energy is the driving force of any economy; economies do not grow as expected when there is an immense shortfall in the supply of energy.
“It puts a stop to financial loss experienced by manufacturers due to the high cost of maintenance of generators as well as high cost of the diesel fuel itself. These cost savings will enhance the survival and growth of industries and the economy”.
