The PDA is another major milestone achievement towards ensuring gas commercialisation through the deployment of an FLNG Facility in Nigeria, in line with President Bola Tinubu’s resolve to rapidly commercialise Nigeria’s gas assets for the economic prosperity of the nation.

The agreement aims to monetise vast proven gas reserves from shallow water resources offshore Nigeria. The PDA also outlines the monetisation plan that will utilise approximately 400-500mmscf/d and produce LNG, LPG and condensate.

The Partners, NNPC Limited and Golar LNG have both expressed their commitment to achieving the Final Investment Decision (FID) before the end of Q4, 2024 and first gas by 2027.
