"We are very pleased to have operationalised our gas sales agreement with CHGC, our third new customer facility we have connected with this year. The rapid progress we have made to diversify and increase Accugas' customer base since acquiring the business has been significant. I would like to thank and commend the Accugas and CHGC/Axxela teams for having worked together so well to achieve the first gas sales milestone so quickly after GSA signature."


Commenting on behalf of Axxela, Chief Executive Officer, Bolaji Osunsanya, said: "This interruptible gas sales agreement reinforces our continued commitment to be the energy partner of choice to our customers.
