Facilitating Growth in the Light Industrial Commercial Sector (LIC)

Supporting Beyond Business


The Light Industrial Commercial (LIC) sector comprises a range of commercial, manufacturing, food and transport industries, producing goods for both domestic and foreign distribution. These include bottles, building materials, asphalt products, industrial gases, bakery goods, alcoholic beverages and paper/tissue products, among many others. NGC’s approximately 110 customers in the LIC sector consume an average of 8,000 mmbtu per day, or 1.2% of NGC’s supply. Although a relatively small gas consumer, the LIC sector is extremely valuable to the economy – as a generator of foreign exchange, and employer of approximately 15000 people.

The LIC and Other Industries Division at NGC has been rebranded as the Manufacturing Industries and Energy Efficiency Division. This Division will be responsible for:

  1. Managing and developing the relationship between NGC and its non-petrochemical customers
  2. Strategically expanding the LIC sector
  3. Driving continuous improvement in energy efficiency in the LIC Sector.

Objectives of NGC’s LIC outreach

  • National Interest: Contribute to the development of the sector
  • Customer Service: Develop and manage business relationships to improve customer satisfaction
  • Marketing: Design and implement marketing plans to attract new customers while ensuring sustainability
  • Negotiation: Negotiate commercial terms and conditions for gas supply
