Nigeria to go all out for biofuels

As the country’s crude production continues to suffer, it is turning to alternative fuels

Nigeria is making biofuels production a national priority to help offset falling revenues from its declining oil output, Abubakar Sani Sambo, special advisor to the president of Nigeria, told delegates at the World Energy Congress yesterday. "Over the past few years we have succeeded in convincing the government that biofuels production is needed. Our oil won't last more than 40 years and our gas won't last more than 60 years," he said. "The government as a whole is keeping abreast of worldwide developments in the sector and the potential in Africa to utilise biofuels. They can be produced using local efforts. From now there is going to be a more aggressive uptake of biofuels." Sambo said
