President Tinubu To Inaugurate Three Key Gas Infrastructure Projects

President Bola Tinubu is set to commission three critical gas infrastructure projects undertaken by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) and partners in Delta and Imo States.

News About Nigeria reports that the projects, described as crucial by the presidency, are part of the administration’s commitment to leveraging gas to drive economic development and eliminate gas flaring.

According to a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, the projects will support the federal government’s effort to maximise value from the nation’s gas assets.

The first project, AHL Gas Processing Plant 2 (GPP-2), is an expansion of the Kwale Gas Processing Plant (GPP-1) in Delta State.

Currently supplying 130MMscf/d of gas to the domestic market, the 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 rapid industrialisation and reduce dependence on LPG imports. The plant will also produce 160,000 MTPA of propane and 100,000 MTPA of butane.

The second project, ANOH Gas Processing Plant (AGPC), is located in Imo State and will process non-associated gas from the Assa North-Ohaji South field.

With a capacity of 300MMscf/d, the plant will produce dry gas, condensate, and LPG, significantly increasing domestic gas supply and leading to increased power generation and industrialization.

The third project, ANOH-OB3 CTMS Gas Pipeline Project, involves the construction of a 36″ x 23.3km transmission gas pipeline to evacuate dry gas from the Assa North-Ohaji South primary treatment facility to the OB3 Custody Transfer Metering Station for delivery into the OB3 pipeline system. This project is expected to make available an estimated 600 MMscf/d of gas from two separate 2 x 300 MMscf/d capacity gas processing production trains.

Upon commissioning, these projects will increase gas supply to the domestic market by approximately 500 mmscf/d, creating a better investment climate and promoting balanced economic growth, the statement said.

It added that this milestone aligns with the administration’s objective of deepening domestic gas supply as a critical enabler for economic prosperity.

The projects are being developed by NNPCL and its partners, including SEEPCO, Seplat Energy Plc, and others.

The commissioning date is, however, yet to be announced.
