Canada to partner with Nigeria on gas infrastructure development – Gabriel Aduda



The Permanent Secretary of Nigeria’s Ministry of Petroleum Resources, Mr. Gabriel Aduda, has announced that Canada has committed to partnering with Nigeria in the establishment of a strong gas infrastructure network. 

Aduda stated that Premier Daniella Smith of Alberta, Canada, conveyed assurance during a meeting on Monday with the Federal Government delegation at the 24th World Petroleum Congress (WPC) in Calgary, Canada. 

The five-day conference has as its theme: “Energy Transition: The Path to Net Zero”. 

Speaking further, Aduda stressed that Nigeria’s ability to achieve its energy transition objectives relies heavily on a robust footing comprised of a three-pronged strategy. 

According to him, these include financing, technology transfer and infrastructure to meet its net-zero target by 2060. 

On divestment of assets, Aduda said that it was not a bad thing as it is an opportunity from one end to the other. 

According to him, the divested assets are a goldmine because it is not as if the assets are left idle but rather, investors are rushing them for takes. 

The 24th WPC has recorded no fewer than 15,000 visitors from over 100 countries, 5,000 delegates and over 200 national and international exhibitors.
