24 June 2015, Sweetcrude, Calabar – Seven Energy International Limited (“Seven Energy”), the indigenous Nigerian integrated gas Company, will host an interactive forum on June 24, 2015 for small and medium enterprises (SME’s) in Calabar, Cross River State themed ‘Gas to Power Your Business’’.
Speaking ahead of the event Steve Tierney, Managing Director, Accugas stated that “this forum is intended to develop and drive our support to SME businesses and to help this important part of the Nigerian economy. Understanding how switching to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is a real alternative which will have a substantial impact on their competitiveness. Seven Energy, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Accugas, has built up infrastructure and a reputation for the reliable supply of high quality gas to sustain business operations for many large industrial customers. We want to bring this value and reliability to the bedrock of the Nigerian economy, SME’s’’.
It is expected that the event will attract several SME’s across Cross River State and its environs. Attendees will learn about the significant competitive advantage natural gas has over diesel including environmental benefits and lower energy cost per unit.
Seven Energy has continued to champion an industrial gas revolution through the development and production of natural gas, and, critically, its commercialisation through investment in processing and distribution infrastructure, where the Company has invested over $1 billion in the south east region of the Niger Delta in the last 5 years.
With significant capacity built into its distribution infrastructure, the Company is capable of providing a long-term supply of gas to additional off takers for power generation and for local industry.
Seven Energy has a growing list of gas off-takers such as United Cement Company of Nigeria, in Calabar, Calabar NIPP, Alaoji NIPP, Ibom Power Station and Notore Chemical Industries Limited.
