JUST IN; President Tinubu set to commission three critical projects


President Bola Tinubu is expected to commission three critical gas infrastructure projects soon.

According to a statement on Friday by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, the gas projects were undertaken by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) and some partners.

President Tinubu had identified Nigeria as more of a gas-resource nation that petroleum-rich, indicating his administration’s interest in exploiting the huge gas reserve available to boost the economy.

Nigeria’s gas reserves, put at about 208.83 trillion cubic feet, accounts for 33% of Africa’s gas reserves.

The projects, aimed at growing value from the nation’s gas assets and eliminating gas flaring, are slated to increase domestic gas supply, promote industrialization, and create a better investment climate.

The projects include the AHL Gas Processing Plant 2 (GPP-2), ANOH Gas Processing Plant (AGPC), and the ANOH-OB3 CTMS Gas Pipeline Project.

The AHL Gas Processing Plant 2 (GPP-2) in Kwame, Delta State will process 200MMscf/d of rich gas and deliver lean gas to the domestic market, supporting rapid industrialisation. The plant will also produce 160,000 MTPA of Propane and 100,000 MTPA of Butane, reducing dependence on LPG imports

The ANOH Gas Processing Plant (AGPC) will process non-associated gas from the Assa North-Ohaji South field in Imo State, producing dry gas, condensate, and LPG.

This will significantly increase domestic gas supply, leading to increased power generation and accelerated industrialization.

The ANOH-OB3 CTMS Gas Pipeline Project will evacuate dry gas from the Assa North-Ohaji South primary treatment facility,  also in Imo State, to OB3 Custody Transfer Metering Station for delivery into the OB3 pipeline system.

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