As part of Nigeria's resolve to become a major international player in the international gas market as well as to lay a solid framework gas infrastructure expansion within the domestic market, the Nigerian Gas Master Plan was approved on February 13 2008.
The Master-Plan is a guide for the commercial exploitation and management of Nigeria’s gas sector.
It aims at growing the Nigerian economy with gas by pursuing three key strategies:
1. Stimulate the multiplier effect of gas in the domestic economy
2. Position Nigeria competitively in high value export markets
3. Guarantee the long term energy security of Nigeria
