Nigeria targets to end gas flare over next two years

According to the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, Nigeria is about 70% compliant on gas flare exit, and hopes to cut the other 30% within the 2020 deadline.

The Minister stated this in the monthly bulletin of Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), reports the Guardian.

Dr Kachikwu said the West African country seeks to end gas flaring 10 years ahead of the 2030 United Nations deadline on flare out.

ESI Africa previously reported that the federal government plans to put an end to gas flaring across the country, having already established the National Gas Flaring Commercialisation Programme.
