Nigeria’s leading energy company, Seplat Energy PLC, has announced the completion of its ANOH gas plant, the largest of its kind in the country. The plant, located in Imo State, has a processing capacity of 300 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) and will supply clean and affordable gas to domestic customers.

The ANOH gas plant is a joint venture between Seplat Energy and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Gas Infrastructure Company Ltd. The project, which cost $650 million, was completed on December 29, 2023, in line with the revised timetable and without any major safety incidents.

The plant will produce dry gas, condensate, and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), also known as cooking gas, from the Assa North-Ohaji South (ANOH) gas field. The dry gas and LPG will be sold to the domestic market, while the condensate will be exported to the international market.

According to Seplat Energy’s Chief Financial Officer, Emeka Onwuka, the ANOH gas plant is a strategic investment that will boost Nigeria’s gas production and utilization, as well as support the government’s efforts to reduce gas flaring and diversify the economy.

“This milestone has been achieved without a single recordable Lost Time Incident (LTI) across 11 million man-hours,” he said. “This is a testament to the focus of the whole team on safe and secure operations.”

The ANOH gas plant is expected to create over 2,000 direct and indirect jobs and contribute to the socio-economic development of the host and impacted communities. It will also help to improve the power generation and industrialization of the country, which currently faces a huge energy deficit.

The ANOH gas project is one of the largest greenfield gas development projects in Nigeria and is part of the government’s plan to increase the country’s gas reserves to 200 trillion cubic feet by 2025. The project is also aligned with the global trend of transitioning to cleaner and greener energy sources.

The completion of the ANOH gas plant is a major achievement for Seplat Energy, which is the leading indigenous energy company in Nigeria and operates in the upstream, midstream, and downstream sectors. The company, which is listed on the Nigerian Exchange and the London Stock Exchange, has a track record of delivering value to its shareholders and stakeholders.

The ANOH gas plant is a testament to the company’s vision of becoming a leading African independent energy company that delivers sustainable and inclusive growth. It is also a demonstration of the company’s commitment to supporting Nigeria’s energy transition and achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
