Nigeria's Tinubu to commission gas infrastructure to boost domestic use

ABUJA (Reuters)Nigeria's President Bola Tinubu will commission two gas processors and a key pipeline as part of ongoing moves to utilize the country's vast gas reserves and end routine flaring, his office said on Friday.

Nigeria, which holds Africa's largest natural gas reserves of more than 200 Tft3, flares—or burns off—gas from its oil fields due to a lack of processing infrastructure and capital constraints.

The projects have been built by state oil firm NNPC Ltd. and its joint partners Seplat Energy and SEEPCO, presidential spokesperson Ajuri Ngelale said in a statement, without specifying the date of the commissioning.

"The projects will increase gas supply to the domestic market by approximately 500 MMft3d, creating a better investment climate and promoting balanced economic growth cumulatively," he said.

Ngelale said the AHL and ANOH gas projects will each boost gas output by 200 MMft3d and 300 MMft3d, respectively, while the ANOH-to-OB3 pipeline will transport the fuel to industry and power plants.
