Nigeria LNG Limited is Nigeria’s number one liquefied natural gas (LNG) and natural gas liquids (NGL) producer. It was created in 1989 as part of the government’s agenda to tap into Nigeria’s abundant gas supply. The company which is a limited liability company is jointly owned by NNPC Limited (49%), Shell Gas B.V. (25.6%), TotalEnergies Gaz & Electricité Holdings (15%), and Eni International N.A. N.V. S.àr.l (10.4%).
The company which started production in 1999 with two trains (liquefaction units) currently operates six trains with the seventh train under construction. The output of NLNG is put at about 22 million tonnes (or 10% of world output) of LNG per year. With the seventh train coming on board, NLNG is expected to increase its output to 35 million tonnes of LNG annually.
All the liquefaction units of the NLNG are presently located in Bonny Island while the corporate office is located in Port Harcourt.
Between 1999 to 2015, NLNG reported about $85 billion in revenue making it one of the most profitable companies in the country. NLNG has also been a major contributor to the federal government through the vehicle of the NNPC before the new Petroleum Act.
In 2020, the ex-MD of NLNG, Mr. Tony Attah reported that the company had paid about $18 billion in dividends to the FG while also paying about $9 billion in taxes to the Federal Government and $134 million in state and local government taxes as well as regulators levies and fees.
NLNG is credited for the widespread transition from kerosene and firewood to cooking gas in Nigerian kitchens. Though an export-oriented company, they have served the populace through the regular injection of about 350,000 metric tonnes of LNG (cooking gas) into the Nigerian market.
In light of the planned expansion of NLNG and the announcement of the Decade of Gas (2021-2030), it remains to be seen what treasures the NLNG can unearth.
