Gas Flaring: Senate to Go Hard On Erring Firms

Senate Committee on Gas has has warned that it would deal with errant oil firms by ensuring the enforcement of necessary legislation against the excessive waste of gas through flaring from next year.

The Chairman of the committee, Senator Bassey Akpan, who stated this, noted that the major concern of his committee was to ensure that the Act of the National Assembly enacted in 2008, which defined the domestic gas supply obligation of every international oil company operating in Nigeria, was adhered to.

According to Akpan, “The law also stipulates the penalty on issue of gas flaring; we will soon engage the stakeholders, starting with the regulators like the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Department of Petroleum Resources and the gas aggregators.”
