Gas city in Delta State, Nigeria

DELTA State may by 2020 host Africa’s largest gas city in Ogidigben, Warri South West Local Government area with an estimated cost of $26 billion (N4.2 trillion), under a joint arrangement between the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and some private sector investors.

The Governor of the state, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, who made the disclosure Monday in Warri, Delta State, at a stakeholders’ meeting, sought for the cooperation from all communities in the area to ensure that the project got underway smoothly.

The project would be located back-to-back with EGTL (Escravos Gas To Liquid) project almost similar to the one being constructed by Chevron Nigeria Limited and expected to be completed in seven years.
