Shell Nigeria Gas, SNG, Limited has increased its domestic gas distribution capacity by 150 per cent, from 42 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscft/d) in December 2017 to 102mmscft/d in May 2018.
The increase in capacity will enable the company distribute 102mmscft of gas per day (mmscf/d) to businesses in its western operations.
Speaking on the company’s operations yesterday in Lagos, 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.
“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).”
