For years, Nigeria has been a major supplier of natural gas to global markets, but only until recently, the domestic supply of natural gas was limited with the energy sector being over-reliant on imported fuels like petrol and diesel. Today, natural gas is available in major markets within Nigeria offering the industrial sector a more reliable, cost-effective and cleaner energy alternative. 

If you’re a manufacturer or business owner who would like to take advantage of the benefits of natural gas for your business, here are four of the best natural gas companies in Nigeria that you can trust with energy needs.

Best Natural Gas Companies in Nigeria Managed By Axxela

The recent advancement in the domestic natural gas sector in Nigeria could not have been possible without the efforts of private and public natural gas companies in Nigeria. Our company, Axxela is one of the few energy companies that has been focused on building the necessary infrastructure for gas distribution across the country. Today, we supply around 80 million cubic feet per day to over 200 industrial customers through four subsidiary companies:

Gaslink Nigeria Limited

Gaslink, is arguably one of the best natural gas companies in Nigeria with a pipeline network of over 160km with a capacity of 130 million cubic feet per day. The company which is a subsidiary of Axxela operates an exclusive gas distribution franchise in the Greater Lagos area in conjunction with the Nigerian Gas Marketing Company and accounts for about 80% of the domestic supply of natural gas within Nigeria. Gaslink has over 165 blue-chip industrial customers, who mostly operate in the manufacturing sector.

Central Horizon Gas Company 

CHGC’s focus on delivering gas to an established industrial customer base as a direct replacement for petrol diesel and other expensive fuels makes it one of the best natural gas companies in Nigeria.
