The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation is currently developing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) power plant on the Island of Brass, Bayelsa State, in Nigeria’s Central Niger Delta.
It is the second LNG project undertaken in Nigeria.
The project stalled in 2014 when shareholder ConocoPhilips sold off all its Nigerian assets, since when the shares have been ring-fenced by the government. It is now in the process of trying to revive the project.
Nigeria has the eighth largest proven natural gas reserves in the world, but ranks only 29th in production.
