Nigeria LNG Limited prides itself on its contribution to the development of Nigerian Content in the oil and gas industry since the construction of its base trains – Trains 1 and 2.
NLNG is again fully committed to Local Content development on the Train 7 Project and that commitment has begun to materialise in preparations for the taking of Final Investment Decision on the project.
In March 2019, NLNG and Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) signed off the Nigeria Content (NC) Plan for NLNG’s Train 7 project which will ensure the delivery of value and benefits to the Nigerian economy.
Tony Attah, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of NLNG, and the Executive Secretary NCDMB, Engr. Simbi Wabote, signed the NC Plan in Abuja on 22nd March 2019, witnessed by representatives of the shareholders of NLNG, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Shell Gas B.V, Total Gaz Electricite Holdings France and ENI International N.A. N. V. S.àr. l,.
The project is anticipated to create about 12,000 direct jobs during the peak of construction.
The project will also support the development of local engineering and fabrication capacity in the country. The total in-country engineering and procurement man-hours is set at 55%.
On fabrication, over 70,000 tonnes of fabrication materials covering condensate stabilization units, tanks, pipe-racks, flare system, non-cryogenic vessels, and many other pipe spools and fittings will be done in-country.
Other opportunities for local content include procurement, logistics, equipment leasing, insurance, hotels, office supplies, aviation, haulage, and many more.
In line with our vision of being “…a global LNG company helping to build a better Nigeria”, Train 7 will help create opportunities for local businesses to build capability in the construction and maintenance of LNG plants.
