Nigeria LNG Train 7 project Timeline And All You Need To know




Nigeria LNG Train 7 project is an ongoing expansion of the Nigeria LNG Terminal at Bonny Island, Nigeria, which currently has a total of six operational LNG processing units, four 84,200m³ LNG storage tanks, four 65,000m³ refrigerated storage tanks, and three 36,000m³ condensate storage tanks.

In addition, the terminal also has a common LNG processing fractionation plant, a common condensate stabilization plant, two LNG export jetties, 23 dedicated LNG ships and a materials off-loading jetty, and ten gas turbine generators with a combined capacity of more than 320MW.

Owned and operated by Nigeria LNG Limited (NLNG) Company, a joint venture between  Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Shell , TotalEnergies , and  Eni , the terminal currently has the capacity to produce 22Mtpa of LNG and 5Mtpa of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and condensate per annum (Mtpa).

The Nigeria LNG Train 7 project will primarily add a seventh LNG processing unit with a production capacity of 4.2Mtpa and supporting infrastructure including an 84,200m³ storage tank, a 36,000m³ condensate tank, and three gas turbine generators at the terminal.

The project, whose cost is approximately US$ 6.5bn, will also include debottlenecking of the existing six trains that will increase the processing capacity by 3.4Mtpa, and the construction of wells and pipelines to supply additional feed gas to the LNG facility.

Upon completion, the Nigeria LNG Train 7 project will increase the Nigeria LNG Terminal production capacity by 35% from the current 22mtpa to 30mtpa.
