With the recent increase in fuel prices in Nigeria, many Nigerians are considering converting their vehicles to run on natural gas as an alternative.
This surge in prices was a result of the removal of fuel subsidies by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
To meet the growing demand for an alternative fuel source, the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) plans to install compressed natural gas (CNG) dispensers in around 30,000 fuel stations across the country.
The estimated cost for CNG would range from N100 to N110 per litre.
This initiative aims to provide Nigerians with a more affordable and sustainable option for powering their vehicles.
However, the success of this transition will depend on the development of a strong infrastructure and addressing any challenges associated with the conversion process.
It is also important for individuals to consider the cost implications of converting their vehicles to natural gas.
What will it cost Nigerians to convert their vehicles?
The infographic data published by HydroCIS, in collaboration with various Nigerian gas associations and groups, provides information on the costs associated with converting internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles to run on natural gas in Nigeria.
The costs for Nigerians to convert their vehicles from internal combustion engines (ICE) to run on natural gas in Nigeria were recently published in an infographic by HydroCIS, in collaboration with the Nigeria LPG Association (NLPGA), the Nigerian Gas Association (NGA), the LPG Group of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce & Industry (LCCI), and the Association of Local Distributors of Gas (ALDG).
What is suitable and what is not?
The infographic provided information on the different variants of natural gas and their suitability for various purposes. It highlighted that compressed natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, and liquefied natural gas have different applications and may be suitable for certain purposes while not suitable for others.
