Sapele Gas Processing Plant
Decommissioning of the surface infrastructure of the existing gas plant reached completion in the fourth quarter of the year.
Site preparation and civil construction works for the new plant have commenced alongside piling activities. For the new plant, we have taken delivery of the Associated Gas Compressors and seven gas generators have been completed ex-works. Procurement of the remainder packages and the balance of the plant equipment is at various stages of contracting, detailed engineering design and fabrication.
The project is expected to be completed in the second half of 2022, with Sapele’s processing capacity increasing from 60MMscfd to 75MMscfd. The upgraded facility will produce gas that meets export specifications, and the LPG processing unit module will enhance the economics of the plant, as well as ensuring that any gas flaring is eliminated.
