President Tinubu to Inaugurate Vital Gas Infrastructure Projects

President Bola Tinubu is set to inaugurate three pivotal gas infrastructure projects spearheaded by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) and its partners, aligning with his commitment to harness gas resources for economic advancement.

This was announced in an official statement on Friday by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale.

These projects, aimed at maximizing the nation’s gas assets while curbing gas flaring, emphasize the government’s dedication to leveraging gas as a catalyst for economic growth.

The projects lined up for commissioning include:

  1. AHL Gas Processing Plant 2 (GPP – 2) – 200MMscf/d:

An expansion of the Kwale Gas Processing Plant (GPP – 1), the GPP – 2 is designed to process 200MMscf/d of rich gas, supplementing the current supply of 130MMscf/d to the domestic market.

This increased gas supply will bolster Nigeria’s industrialization efforts and reduce reliance on LPG imports.

The plant, developed by AHL Limited—a joint venture of NNPC Limited and Sterling Oil Exploration & Energy Production (SEEPCO)—will also produce 160,000 MTPA of Propane and 100,000 MTPA of Butane.

  1. ANOH Gas Processing Plant (AGPC) – 300MMscf/d:

Located in Imo State, the ANOH gas plant has a processing capacity of 300MMscf/d and will process non-associated gas from the Assa North-Ohaji South field.

It will produce dry gas, condensate, and LPG, significantly augmenting domestic gas supply and enhancing power generation and industrialization.

ANOH Gas Processing Company, a joint venture of NNPC Limited and Seplat Energy Plc, is developing the plant.

  1. ANOH-OB3 CTMS Gas Pipeline Project:

This project involves the construction of a 36”x23.3km gas pipeline to transport dry gas from the Assa North-Ohaji South primary treatment facility to the OB3 Custody Transfer Metering Station. With an estimated capacity of 600MMscf/d, the pipeline will enhance gas evacuation and contribute to the overall gas supply chain.


These initiatives, collectively adding approximately 500mmscf/d to the domestic gas market, are poised to improve the investment climate and foster balanced economic growth upon their commissioning.
