Recall that UTM in collaboration with Japan Gas Company (JGC) and Technip Energies Limited began the commencement of the Front End Engineering Design (FEED) for the nation’s first Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) facility.

When the construction of the FLNG facility is completed, it will have an LNG nameplate production capacity of 1.2 million metric ton per annum and a storage capacity of 200,000 cubic meters, as well as ancillary facilities to be located 60 km from the shore of Akwa Ibom State.

Nigeria currently has an estimated 209 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of proven gas and a potential upside of 600 Tcf of gas, the most extensive in Africa, and in the top 10 globally. With the world moving to cleaner energy, Nigeria holds a vantage position.
