Tinubu set to commission 3 gas infrastructure projects –Presidency

In a move to bolster Nigeria’s gas sector and drive economic growth, President Bola Tinubu is set to commission three major gas infrastructure projects undertaken by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) and its partners, the presidency has said.

According to a statement issued on Friday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, the implementation of these projects aligns with his commitment to leveraging the country’s gas resources to spur economic prosperity.

According to Ngelale, the first project is the AHL Gas Processing Plant 2 (GPP-2), a 200mmscf/d expansion to the existing Kwale Gas Processing Plant (GPP-1). The GPP-1 currently supplies about 130MMscf/d of gas to the domestic market, and the new GPP-2 will process an additional 200MMscf/d of rich gas, delivering lean gas through the OB3 Gas Pipeline.

The expanded capacity, the presidential spokesman said, is expected to support further industrialization in Nigeria and reduce the country’s dependency on LPG imports, as the plant will also produce 160,000 MTPA of Propane and 100,000 MTPA of Butane.

The second, project, he said, is the ANOH Gas Processing Plant (AGPC), a 300MMscf/d capacity gas processing facility designed to process non-associated gas from the Assa North-Ohaji South field in Imo State. Ngelale noted that the gas from the ANOH plant would significantly increase domestic gas supply, leading to enhanced power generation and accelerated industrialization.

The third project is the ANOH-OB3 CTMS Gas Pipeline Project, which involves the engineering, procurement, and construction of a 36-inch, 23.3-kilometer pipeline to evacuate dry gas from the ANOH primary treatment facility to the OB3 Custody Transfer Metering Station (CTMS) for delivery into the OB3 pipeline system.

According to the statement, the combined output from these projects is estimated to be around 600MMscf/d, which will increase gas supply to the domestic market by approximately 500mmscf/d, creating a more favorable investment climate and promoting balanced economic growth.

He emphasized that the delivery of these projects has been accelerated since the inception of the Tinubu administration, underscoring the government’s commitment to deepening domestic gas supply as a critical enabler for economic prosperity.
