Nigeria’s Natural Gas Limited company says it signed the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) Contracts for its Train 7 Project with the SCD JV Consortium.
According to a statement signed by Mrs. Eyono Fatayi-Williams, General Manager, External Relations of the Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) and made available to ALSC in Abuja on Wednesday, the consortium comprised affiliates of Saipem, Chiyoda and Daewoo.
She said the execution of the EPC contracts triggered the commencement of the Detail Design and Construction phase of the Project, adding that it was expected to increase the capacity of NLNG’s current six-train plant by 35 per cent, from the extant 22 Million Tonnes Per Annum (MTPA) to 30 MTPA.
The spokeswoman quoted Tony Attah, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of NLNG as saying that the EPC contracts represented yet another milestone in NLNG’s journey.
The CEO said it was a journey toward achieving the vision of being a global LNG company, helping to build a better Nigeria.
“With the award of the EPC contracts to our preferred bidders (SCD JV), we are guaranteeing that our country remains significantly on the global list of LNG suppliers. This singular act clearly demonstrates our shareholders’ determination and resolve to sustain the economic dividends that NLNG’s monetisation of our vast natural gas reserves offers our great country Nigeria,” he said.
