Headed by Mr. Deepak Khilnani, the Company’s ‘Gas on Wheels’ service is providing firms with a real alternative to dirty and expensive diesel fuel, offering the region’s manufacturing sector a new lease of life.

Speaking on the challenges faced by most manufacturing companies in Nigeria, Mr. Khilnani, Chief Executive Officer, Powergas Africa said that the need for the adoption of Gas to Power Solutions by manufacturers in Nigeria is inevitable, because energy costs is a major challenge faced by most manufacturing companies today.

“This has become imperative, more so, in these tough times where organizations are concentrating on cost optimization, import substitutions and energy security, and Nigeria’s Domestic Gas Reserves tick these 3 boxes perfectly.

“There is a gap between the end-users and gas producers (due to developing Gas Pipeline Infrastructure), which Powergas is dedicated to fill in with its novel ‘Virtual Gas Pipeline’ Solution in the form of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) or Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).
