Pres.Tinubu set to inaugurate Kwale Gas Processing Plant (GPP-1)

486

President Bola Tinubu is set to inaugurate the three critical gas infrastructure projects being undertaken by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) and partners.

The inauguration is in line with the president’s commitment to significantly leverage gas to grow the economy.

Persecondnews correspondent covering the event reports that already on ground for the inauguration of the Kwale Gas Processing Plant (GPP-1) with the theme, “From Gas to Prosperity, Renewed Hope” are the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources (Gas), Mr. Ekperikpe Ekpo, and the host governor, Mr. Sheriff Oborevwori.

The projects support the federal government’s efforts to increase the value of the country’s gas assets.

Persecondnews also reports that the project is an expansion of the Kwale Gas Processing Plant (GPP-1), which currently supplies about 130MMscf/d of gas to the domestic market.

The processing plant is designed to process 200 MMscf/d of rich gas and deliver lean gas through the OB3 Gas Pipeline.

This additional gas supply will support further rapid industrialization in Nigeria. The plant will also produce about 160,000 MTPA of propane and 100,000 MTPA of butane, which will reduce the dependency on LPG imports.

The AHL Gas Plant is being developed by AHL Limited, an incorporated joint venture owned by NNPC Limited and SEEPCO.
