The Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited says it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with PayGas, a South African company, to support the use of affordable liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in rural areas across the country.

According to a statement by the national oil company on Friday, Huub Stokman, the managing director of NNPC Retail Limited, and Philippe Hoeblichthe, chief executive officer (CEO) and co-founder of PayGas, signed the MoU on behalf of both companies.

“On Friday, NNPC Retail Limited (NRL) held a strategic business meeting with a delegation from PayGas and the Oil Sustainability Programme (OSP), Saudi Arabia, to enhance the use of affordable clean cooking fuel (LPG) in semi-rural areas across the country,” NNPC said. 

“The NRL management led the delegation on a site inspection of proposed locations for Micro-Filling plants in various semi-rural areas.


“Following the successful meeting, the Managing Director of NNPC Retail Ltd., Huub Stokman, and the CEO and Co-founder of PayGas, Philippe Hoeblich, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on June 21, 2024, to formalise the partnership.”

The collaboration, NNPC said, intends to rapidly deploy micro-filling plant (MFP) solutions using modern technology to make LPG accessible and affordable in rural areas — empowering people to pay as they refill gas.
