More about natural gas

Advantages of Natural Gas

Reliability: Natural gas supply is generally more reliable than liquid fuel supply in trucks because it is a continuous flow stream through the pipeline. All a customer need do is to just open the valve.

Abundance & Availability: Natural gas is not imported, but is in abundant supply in Nigeria’s Niger Delta region, where it is found in gas reservoirs or produced along with oil as associated gas.

Easy to Control: With natural gas, you can easily monitor and control your fuel/feedstock expenses and costs, without the fear of short-supply or spillage.

No Need For Storage: There’s also no need for huge capital investment on storage facilities because natural gas flows from the wellhead through pipelines and processing systems to locations where it is required.

Handling: No physical handling is required.

Flexibility: There are various types and sizes of burners and appliances available to suit different energy/utilization applications.

More Environment-Friendly: Natural gas is more environment-friendly, as it has much lower sulphur content than liquid fuels. It also burns more efficiently.

How to get Natural Gas

If your organisation operates within or around the SNG’s operational areas of Agbara/Ota (Ogun State) and Aba (Abia state), then your chances of getting gas supply from Shell Nigeria Gas Limited are high.

It is very important that a potential gas customer contacts SNG at an early stage of project definition. This is to enable the alignment of the project schedules of both sides and give Shell Nigeria Gas Limited enough time to study and decide whether to invest in the customers’ project. This will also enable SNG to start supplying gas to the customer on the very day his plant is ready to commence gas utilisation and begin production.

A new customer will usually go through the steps highlighted below before beginning to enjoy gas supply:

  • Initial contact, usually an exploratory meeting between SNG and customer
  • Information exchange between parties
  • Carrying out of conceptual facility design and cost estimates.
  • SNG carries out preliminary economic analysis of the project.
  • Signing of a Letter of Intent 
  • A review of the detailed project design and schedule
  • Carrying out a detailed project economic evaluation *
  • Negotiation and signing of a Gas Sales and Purchase Agreement (GSPA)
  • Construction begins
  • Plant/factory commissioning, gas starts to flow.

A very crucial stage in this process is the detailed project economic evaluation stage. Here, both SNG and the customer must demonstrate to each other that the project is economically viable and offers economic benefit(s) to both parties.
