Towards its avowal to monetise Nigeria’s vast natural gas, the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, NNPC, has implemented a Project Development Agreement, PDA, with Golar LNG for a Floating Liquefied Natural Gas, LNG, project offshore the Niger Delta, Nigeria.

The signing ceremony, which took place on Monday was attended by the Chief Financial Officer, Umar Ajiya; Executive Vice President, Gas Power & New Energy, Olalekan Ogunleye and Executive Vice President, Upstream, Mrs. Oritsemeyiwa Eyesan while the Golar LNG team was led by Karl Fredrik Staubo the Chief Executive Officer.

The PDA is another major milestone achievement towards ensuring gas commercialisation through deployment of an FLNG Facility in Nigeria, which is in line with Mr. President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s resolve to rapidly commercialise Nigeria’s gas assets for the economic prosperity of the Nation.

The agreement aims to monetise vast proven gas reserves from shallow water resources offshore Nigeria. The PDA also outlines the monetisation plan that will utilise approximately 400-500mmscf/d and produce LNG, LPG and Condensate.

The Partners, NNPC Limited and Golar LNG have both expressed their commitment to achieve Final Investment Decision, FID, before end of Q4, 2024 and first gas by 2027.

Golar LNG Limited is a renowned independent owner and operator of LNG infrastructure, including carriers, floating storage and re-gasification units, FSRUs, and floating liquefaction, FLNG, vessels.
