19 October 2016, Sweetcrude, Abuja – The Management of Dangote Industries Limited announced that it had completed the acquisition of Twister BV, a company in the Netherlands, as part of its strategy to meet Nigeria’s gas needs, according to various media reports.

According to a statement by Dangote, Twister BV provides robust solutions in natural gas processing and separation to the upstream and midstream oil and gas sectors.

The company reportedly delivers reliable, high-yield and robust solutions in natural gas processing and separation to the upstream and midstream oil and gas sectors. Its unique separation capabilities are designed for augmenting production and streamlining processes, and to capitalise on high-yield gas processing for maximising revenues.

Based on sophisticated patented technology, Twister gas plants are typically cheaper to build and operate compared to alternative technologies, and also deliver better performance levels.

Twister BV used to be owned by Shell Technology Ventures Fund 1 before its recent acquisition by DIL and its partner, First E&P, the statement said.
