Nigeria to add 120 million cubic feet of gas per day to natural gas grid
Mrs Alison-Madueke, Minister of Petroleum Resources Diezani said the government has initiated an extensive gas expansion project, which will add 120 million cubic feet of gas per day to Nigeria’s natural gas grid.
Speaking to The Daily Trust newspaper she said that the change allows for officials to meet the “full requirement” of a series of gas facilities, including Egbin, the Sapele Power Holding Co. of Nigeria, Delta IV, Olorunshogo and both the PHCN and National Integrated Power Project plants along with the Omotosho PHCN power plants.
“The net impact of the addition of 120 million cubic feet of gas per day to the national power grid and the permanent elimination of the challenges of low gas pressure that has plagued the Olorunshogo PHCN and NIPP power plants,” she said.
She added that the country was positioned to supply gas to the Geregu Power plant and all anticipated expansions there.
