The Nigerian Gas Associationâ€™s Executive Council has established five study groups to spearhead research and explore viable methods to further develop the nationâ€™s vast and untapped gas resources for domestic utilisation.
Commenting at the inauguration of the study groups, NGA President, Bolaji Osunsanya, said: â€œI am excited by the calibre and experience of the volunteers involved, and the vibrant enthusiasm theyâ€™ve shown for the task at hand. The rejuvenation of the study groups encourages the self-development of our members, and establishes the groups as focal engagement points and drivers of the NGAâ€™s pertinent objectives. More importantly, the key findings collated will significantly enhance the associationâ€™s advocacy capacity, and enable us better synergise with the government and other important institutions to promote the best technical, regulatory, and contractual practices.â€
The NGA first Vice President and overseer of the study groups, Engr. Dada Thomas said, â€œThe fact-based research and key position papers provided by the study groups will play a crucial part in advancing the NGAâ€™s Four Cardinal Value Propositions of anticipating and driving legislation and policies; positioning the association as the data and knowledge resource center of choice within the industry; encouraging best practices and acceptable standards; and promoting viable investments within the Nigerian gas sector. The executive council is committed to the prevailing success of the groups, and will ensure adequate support is constantly provided.â€
