  • The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) recently concluded the Final Investment Decision (FID) on the development of the 4.3 trillion cubic feet Assa North/Ohaji South Fields (ANOH).
  • The project is being developed by NNPC and its Joint Venture partners including Shell Petroleum Development Company, Total Exploration and Production Nigeria and Nigeria Agip Oil Company.
  • A company statement disclosed that the project, when fully developed, would add about 600 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (mmscfd) to the national gas grid.

The plant will also have the capacity to expand to 1.2 billion cubic feet per day, while another 197 million stock barrel (mmstb) of Condensate will also be realised.

Group MD of the NNPC, Dr Maikanti Baru, described the ANOH project as a critical gas supply hub in Nigeria’s burgeoning gas-infrastructure network designed to provide the linkage between the Eastern, Western and Northern gas pipeline system.

According to Dr Baru, the successful completion of the multi-faceted project which is an integral part of the 7-Critical Gas Development Projects, would be dependent on synergy and team work between NNPC and all the key stakeholders.

The MD also commended the stakeholders for signing the FID on the ANOH Project after being on the drawing board for 14 years. He said the corporation and its JV partners have worked on all the issues and have developed a sustainable strategy to develop the considerable gas resources in Assa North-Ohaji South Fields.

“Finally, I will like to conclude with immense compliments to the NNPC, Shell Petroleum Development Company, Total Exploration and Production Nigeria and Nigeria Agip Oil Company; project teams and other critical stakeholders as we enter into the next major phases – Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) of this project”, said Dr Baru.
