20 March 2015, Lagos – Seven Energy International Limited, an indigenous Nigerian oil and gas development, production and distribution company, has commenced the supply of natural gas to Notore Chemical Industries Plc, a leading fertiliser and agro-allied company in Africa.
The supply of gas to Notore in Onne, Rivers State, executed through Accugas, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Seven Energy, is being done at a rate of 25 million cubic feet per day (MMcfpd) as part of the feedstock to Notore’s fertiliser plant.
By this arrangement, Seven Energy is enabling the Notore fertiliser plant to improve its operational efficiency and enhancing the plant’s output. Natural gas is the core input in the production of fertiliser.
Chief Executive Officer, Seven Energy, Phillip Ihenacho, said: “We are happy to announce the formal commencement of gas deliveries to Notore Chemical Industries Plc through our subsidiary, Accugas, a clear demonstration of our commitment to drive the industrialization of Nigeria through the development of the country’s huge natural gas resources.
‘’Through the supply of our processed gas, we are providing a new source of feedstock to meet the company’s increasing requirements, whilst directly enabling the production of fertiliser that Nigeria’s burgeoning agriculture sector desperately needs to grow.” Mr. Stephen Tierney, Managing Director, Accugas, said the deal represented another significant step for Accugas in its effort to increase domestic supply and utilization of gas for the good of Nigerians and the country’s economy.
“By providing clean, dependable and quality gas supply to the plant, and doing so via an integrated end-to-end solution, we are demonstrating our clear commitment and execution performance toward enhancing domestic gas consumption for broader industrialization,” he said.
