In the Authority’s view, Nigeria has an opportunity to leverage its vast gas resources to quicken industrialization. NSIA’s major objective for the gas sector is to transform Nigeria into an industrialised nation with gas playing a major role in the country’s economic transformation agenda. NSIA views gas development as a catalyst for economic diversification and industrialization.
Under a partnership programme with OCP of Morocco, NSIA is presently developing a Diammonium Phosphate and Ammonia plant. The project is a backward integration initiative, which will ensure that Nigeria produces Ammonia, a basic input in fertiliser production.
