Since 2000, we have passionately committed to building Axxela into a leading natural gas company in Africa. With several completed pipeline projects, remarkable partnership and a growing base of consumers, we have come a long way since the start, but there is even so much more to look forward to. Here is an overview of our achievements and the vision that we’re building.


Our vision is to power Africa with innovative energy solutions that create sustainable and efficient energy utilization across all sectors. Our goal is that by providing affordable and cleaner energy access, we can spur industrialization, job creation, capacity building and technology advancement across the continent towards a prosperous future. As a natural gas company in Africa, we believe we can offer the continent a critical transition fuel that can lead us out of oil dependence as we seek more sustainable energy for our development. This is why we also take a sustainable and environment-friendly approach to our operations, ensuring they align responsibly with climate action. 


With over $500 million invested for infrastructure development in the last 18 years, our operations presently include gas processing, transmission and distribution as well as power generation. We have successfully facilitated cost-effective power alternatives for over 185 industrial customers including Nigerian Breweries Plc.,  Chi Ltd., Dangote Sugar, Flour Mills of Nigeria Plc., BUA Group, PZ Cussons, and Nigerian Bottling Company.

In addition, we have demonstrated competitive leadership in the energy market as a natural gas company in Africa by leveraging the capability of our gas grid to build power generation plants, comprising independent power plants and embedded power plants. Among our completed projects is the Akute Independent Power Plant, Alausa Independent Power Plant and we are currently involved in the implementation of power plants through the Light Up Lagos Project and embedded power projects including the construction of a power plant for Eko Electricity Distribution Company; and Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company.  

As a natural gas company in Africa, we are also a pioneer indigenous brand in Nigeria and the first private natural gas shipper on the West African Gas Pipeline. Axxela has developed Nigeria’s foremost natural gas distribution network infrastructure that stretches over 330 kilometres and delivers at a peak of 80 million standard cubic feet per day.
