0 94

According to the European Union ambassadors on Monday, at least 40% of NLNG was exported to Europe and this calls for greater cooperation between Nigeria and the EU in the possible increase in LNG supplies.

The EU Ambassador to Nigeria, Samuela Isopi, who spoke on behalf of the group, stated that the current geopolitical situation in Europe had made it necessary for the continent to strengthen its relations with Nigeria, particularly as regards the supply of gas from Nigeria to EU countries. Quoting the ambassador, he said “Nigeria is the fourth gas supplier to Europe.

The Group Managing Director, NNPC, Mele Kyari, assured the European delegation that the company would continue to deepen its historical relationship with EU companies in Nigeria.

The statement outlined other diplomats from the European delegation on the visit including the Ambassador of Portugal, Luis Barros; Ambassador of Spain, Juan Sell; Ambassador of Italy, Stefano De Leo; and Deputy Head of Mission, France, Olivier Chatelais.

Last month, the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva, had told a delegation from the European Union that Nigeria was ready to step in as an alternative gas supplier to Europe.
