Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is a fuel gas mainly composed of methane, compressed to less than 1% of the volume it occupies at standard atmospheric pressure.

It is stored and distributed in hard containers, usually cylindrical, at a pressure of 20–25 megapascals.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd (NNPCL) announced that Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is 40% cheaper than Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) in Nigeria and commissioned twelve new CNG stations in Lagos and Abuja, aimed at reducing transportation costs in the country.

CNG provides Nigeria with affordable alternatives to existing fuel products. It will be about 40% cheaper than petrol and, with continued investments, will become a significant part of our energy mix.
