Port Harcourt — Dutch oil giant, Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited, SPDC, has hinted that its Assa North Gas project, has the capacity for 300million standard cubic feet of gas per day.
The multinational energy firm also disclosed that the project has the potential to be one of the largest domestic gas projects in Nigeria when completed.
The Assa North/Ohaji South gas project, which cuts across Imo and Rivers State, is a joint venture project, involving SPDC, NNPC, Total E&P Nigeria Limited, and Nigerian Agip Oil Company, and will result in a new SPDC gas processing plant.
The development, according to SPDC, will help the Federal Government deliver on its ambition to provide enough gas for domestic consumption, power generation and gas-based ammonia and urea fertilizers for farmers.
SPDC General Manager, External Relations, Mr. Igo Weli, disclosed these recently at the inauguration of the Egi/Igburu cluster development board for pipeline communities to SPDC’s Assa North Gas Project.
“SPDC reiterates the company’s commitment to the Assa North Gas Project and to making it an exemplary one, particularly in Nigeria’s quest for energy sufficiency, for power generation and industrialization,” Weli said.
