Our client is venturing into the business of providing Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Solutions and is thus, setting-up shop to build a market share in the emerging market of LNG/CNG Logistics, particularly in the supply of gas feedstock to off-grid electricity power plants in Nigeria.
Our client’s strategic plan would entail the initial roll-out of the LNG model, which would encompass the build-out of a Liquefaction plant at a site close to a gas processing facility and a corresponding Regasification Plant at the customer end. The LNG will be trucked via specialised LNG trucks; from the liquefaction plant, to the regasification plan. This model will be followed closely with the roll-out of a CNG model. The CNG model will entail the establishment of a Compression unit at the gas processing facility and a corresponding Decompression unit(s) at the customer end. The CNG model will address our client’s gas customer needs, within closer proximity to the gas processing plant.
Our client also plans to extend the supply of gas products in the near future through the building a gas processing plant which would also serve as a feedstock for their LNG & CNG Plants.
