The management of Shell Nigeria Gas (SNG) Limited, has boosted domestic gas distribution capacity by 150 per cent in the last six months with fresh target of distributing more than 100 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (mmscf/d) to businesses in its western operations.

This was revealed by the company’s, Bamidele Odugbesan, who revealed that the new capacity is equivalent to some 400 megawatts (MW) of gas to power and has been enabled by the construction of a second train at the Agbara/Ota Pressure Reduction and Metering Station (PRMS) in Ogun State, from where SNG supplied its first customers with gas.

SNG Managing Director, Ed Ubong, said “The expansion project shows the commitment of Shell to Nigeria’s industrialisation through the monetisation of Nigeria’s abundant gas resources,” stressing that the modules for the second train were fabricated by a Nigerian company which collaborated with its foreign partners to safely execute the project without any Lost Time injuries(LTI’s).

According to him, “We’re continuing the campaign for gas by discussing with various stakeholders to deepen and expand domestic gas supply to existing industrial and new manufacturing clusters in various locations in Nigeria.”
