​Nigeria LNG Limited (NLNG) prides itself on its contribution, since the construction phase of its base trains, Train 1 and 2, to the development of Nigerian Content in the oil and gas industry. NLNG is, again, fully committed to Local (Nigerian) Content development on its Train 7 Project.

In March 2019, NLNG and the 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.

On 27th December 2019, NLNG took Final Investment Decision (FID) for the project in Abuja. This was followed by the issuance of the Nigerian Content Compliance Certificate (NCCC) and Approved Vendors Lists (AVLs) by NCDMB in April 2020.

Working closely with NCDMB, this project is committed to giving first consideration to Nigerian indigenous service providers and manufacturers of goods without compromising business ethics, HSE and quality at a competitive price. 

The Train 7 project is anticipated to create more than 12,000 direct jobs at 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 man hours is set at 55 per cent, while 55 per cent of all procurement for execution of the project will be done by Nigerian vendors. In addition, 100 per cent of all installations and construction will happen in Nigeria.

On fabrication, over 70,000 tonnes of fabrication materials covering condensate stabilisation units, tanks, pipe racks, flare system, non-cryogenic vessels, and many other pipe spools and fittings will be made 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.
