Nigerian energy infrastructure conglomerate, Sahara Group, has announced an investment of $1bn into Africa’s liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) value chain during the African Refiners and Distribution Association (ARDA) conference 2021 in South Africa this week.

“Sahara, through its subsidiary, WAGL Energy Limited is already working towards investing $1 billion to ramp up its LPG fleet and terminal infrastructure over the next five years. In addition to the vessel fleet, Sahara is in the process of building over 120,000 metric tonnes of LPG storage in eleven countries,” he said.

In October 2020, Sahara and Côte d’Ivoire’s national oil company PETROCI notably broke ground on a new 12,000 MT LPG storage terminal on the outskirts of Abidjan. The company has also earmarked additional such projects in Nigeria, Senegal, Ghana, Tanzania and Zambia while considering additional investment elsewhere on the continent.
