Nigeria LNG Limited (NLNG), on Friday, at the University of Port Harcourt commissioned $2 million NLNG Centre for Gas, Refining and Petrochemical Engineering donated to the institution as part of the company’s $12 million University Support Programme.

The centre is the third of six world class science/engineering laboratories to be commissioned by the company. In November 2015 and March 2016, NLNG commissioned the Ahmadu Bello University Multi-user Engineering Laboratory and the University of Ibadan Engineering Complex respectively.

The University of Port Harcourt laboratory features the first modular petrochemical refinery in a Nigerian university.

The USP scheme was launched in 2014 to help develop engineering education capacity in the country. The other beneficiaries are University of Ilorin, University of Maiduguri and University of Nigeria, Nsukka.

The commissioning of the laboratory complex was witnessed by the Deputy Governor of Rivers State, Dr. Mrs Ipalibo Harry Banigo, representatives of the Board and management of NLNG, the Council of University of Port Harcourt and guests from the public and private sectors.
