Communique on Methane Emissions Reductions Training and Stakeholder Engagement Sessions on Energy Transition and Methane Emissions

In 2022, the Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI) in collaboration with the Nigerian Extractive Industries Transparency Iniave (NEITI) and BudgIT Foundation, convened a national dialogue with various stakeholders, including the energy transition-related government institutions, civil society, oil companies and the media to understand Nigerias response to the energy transition, its impacts and opportunities and challenges it presents. The dialogue aimed to inform the countrys energy transition plan and implementation process, ensuring that it reflects the needs and aspirations of the Nigerian people. One of the themes of the dialogue focused on interrogating the practicality and feasibility of using gas as a transition fuel to renewables in Nigeria’s energy transition plan. Since then, NRGI has explored how Nigeria can right-size its ambitions for gas as it seeks to expand its use up to 2030 in consideration of the impacts of that expansion on the lives and livelihoods of the Nigerian people.

Building on that intervention, NRGI partnered with NEITI and the Centre for Journalism Innovation and Development (CJID) to foster a broader understanding of energy transition and the role of gas and to build new momentum around methane emissions reduction efforts in Nigerias oil and gas sector, to mitigate the economic and environmental impact of Nigerias plans to expand its gas uses.
