The Nigerian Army has taken delivery of cylinders manufactured by a Nigerian company for the flag off of its Welfare Scheme.

The cylinders were produced at Oil’s newly-built Liquefied Petroleum Gas LPG manufacturing plant in Lagos, which started rolling out cylinders earlier this year.

The company which has since secured certifications by various agencies, including the Standards Organisation of Nigeria, SON is producing in commercial quantities for Nigeria and overseas markets.

On April 11th, the Army inaugurated a scheme, known as the Nigerian Army Welfare, and followed up with the inauguration of a Liquefied Petroleum Gas LPG plant at the Mambila Barracks in Abuja. The event was witnessed by the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, who directed that filling stations would henceforth host LPG plants as part of efforts to deepen cooking gas usage in Nigeria.
