The Federal Government is warning gas producers to stop discouraging awardees in the gas flare commercialization programme from embarking on the project.
It gave the warning at a meeting that had operators in the upstream petroleum industry and the Chief Executive of the Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission, Gbenga Komolafe, in Abuja.
In his address at the post-award engagement between the NUPRC and producers operating assets under the Nigerian Gas Flare Commercialization Programme, Komolafe stated that the commission would not accept any ploy by gas producers to dissuade successful awardees from embarking on the project.
The Federal Government, through the NUPRC, had issued relevant letters of award to 42 individual companies for all 49 flare sites on offer in September 2023.
