The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Seplat Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) have signed agreements to expedite the development of a project aimed at delivering about 3.4 billion standard cubic feet of gas per day by 2020.
The project, Assa North and Ohaji South (ANOH) gas development scheme, is one of the seven Critical Gas Development Projects (7CGDP) which is aimed at boosting gas production and infrastructure development.
Speaking at the event, NNPC Group Managing Director, Dr. Maikanti Baru, explained a special purpose vehicle (SPV) known as ANOH Gas Processing Company (AGPC) was being promoted by the two oil firms to develop, build, operate and maintain the ANOH Gas Processing Plant, with an initial capacity of 300 million standard cubic feet per day in Imo State.
Represented by the Chief Operating Officer, Gas and Power, Engr. Saidu Mohammed, the GMD said NNPC would do everything possible to ensure that the project was successfully delivered.
