Tinubu to Unveil 3 Critical Gas Infrastructure Projects

3rd May 2024

President Bola Tinubu is set to inaugurate three critical gas infrastructure projects being undertaken by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited and partners.

The inauguration is in line with the President’s commitment to significantly leveraging gas to grow the economy.

The projects is to support the Federal Government’s effort to grow value from the nation’s gas assets while eliminating gas flaring.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, and shared on his Facebook page on Friday.

According to the statement, the delivery of the projects was accelerated from the inception of the administration in keeping with the overall objective of deepening the domestic gas supply as a critical enabler for economic prosperity.

The projects to be inaugurated include AHL Gas Processing Plant 2 (GPP – 2) – 200mmscf/d

This project is an expansion to the Kwale Gas Processing Plant (GPP – 1), which currently supplies about 130MMscf/d of gas to the domestic market.

The processing plant is designed to process 200MMscf/d of rich gas and deliver lean gas through the OB3 Gas Pipeline.

This additional gas supply will support further rapid industrialisation of Nigeria. The plant will also produce about 160,000 MTPA of Propane and 100,000 MTPA of Butane, which will reduce the dependency on LPG Imports.

The AHL Gas Plant is being developed by AHL Limited, an incorporated Joint Venture owned by NNPC Limited and SEEPCO.

The second project is ANOH Gas Processing Plant (AGPC) – 300MMscf/d which is an integrated 300MMscf/d capacity gas processing plant designed to process non-associated gas from the Assa North-Ohaji South field in Imo State. The plant will produce dry gas, condensate, and LPG.

The gas from the ANOH gas plant will significantly increase the domestic gas supply, leading to increased power generation and accelerated industrialization. The ANOH Gas Plant is being developed by ANOH Gas Processing Company, an incorporated Joint Venture owned by NNPC Limited and Seplat Energy Plc on a 50-50 basis.

The third project is ANOH-OB3 CTMS Gas Pipeline Project which involves the engineering, procurement, and construction of a 36”x23.3km ANOH-OB3 Project.

The Transmission Gas Pipeline will evacuate dry gas from the Assa North-Ohaji South (ANOH) primary treatment facility (PTF) to the OB3 Custody Transfer Metering Station (CTMS) for delivery into the OB3 pipeline system. About 600MMscf/d is estimated to be available from two separate 2 x 300MMscf/d capacity gas processing production trains from AGPC & SPDC JV.

When inaugurated, the projects will increase gas supply to the domestic market by approximately 500mmscf/d, creating a better investment climate and promoting balanced economic growth cumulatively.
