The Chief Executive Officer of Techno Oil Group, Mrs. Nkechi Obi, has revealed that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will be commissioning a cooking gas manufacturing plant in Lagos on Friday.
The CEO who revealed that the building of the plant commenced in 2015 said, “His Excellency, the vice-president has graciously accepted to commission of our Liquefied Pressure Gas (LPG) manufacturing plant for the service of Nigerians and humanity.
“The commissioning is slated for June 7 at the premises of the plant along the Lekki -Epe highway in the Ibeju-Lekki Local Government Area of Lagos State.’’
She also revealed that Techno Oil secured the services of a company from Europe to build the plant with strict supervision of various regulatory agencies, including the Standards Organization of Nigeria (SON) and Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR).
“We expect that the plant will go a long way in generating hundreds of jobs for the teeming Nigerian population, especially those residing in Lagos and save the country huge foreign exchange used in the importation of LPG Cylinders before now.
“At full capacity, the automated plant will produce over five million units of standard LPG cylinders annually for the Nigerian markets and indeed markets in the West African sub-region.
“This project is another milestone in our company’s efforts at bridging the infrastructure gap hindering the penetration and adoption of LPG in Nigeria,’’ Obi stated.
