Brass LNG Ltd (BLL), a consortium of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Total S.A. (Total) and Eni S.p.A. (Eni), is planning to construct the LNG Plant in Bayelsa in the oil-rich Niger River delta, Nigeria.
The project involves the construction of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant with a capacity of 10MTPA.
It includes the construction of two LNG trains each with a capacity of 5 MPTA, the construction of a 2-MPTA LPG recovery system, storage tanks, and other related infrastructure, and the installation of LNG pipelines and safety systems.
The two 5-MTPA capacity LNG trains require supply of 11.7Tcf to be profitable and for which Eni is expected to supply 4.7Tcf from its OML 60, 61, 62 and 63, and Total 3.6Tcf.
In 2003, a Heads of Agreement was signed by the shareholders to undertake the project.
In October 2007, Nigerian Westminster Dredging & Marine Ltd was awarded the early works contract for the project. The scope of the contract involves the construction of a pioneer camp and pre-loads for the future tank farm of the proposed plant, the temporary road construction and the excavation of sand from a borrow pit for the pre-load areas.
The Final Investment Decision (FID) on the project was initially scheduled to be signed in December 2006, however, it has faced several delays since then.
In November 2014, a pre-qualification tender was issued for the appointment of a project management consultant (PMC) with a submission deadline as December 9, 2014.
In January 2015, a pre-FEED team, led by Eni, adopted a new technology APCL to spur the implementation of the project.
In July 2015, the project was kept on hold but revived again in September 2015.
Pre-front end engineering design (FEED) and concept evaluation study has been completed.
BLL planning to redesign the plant as it could not achieve FID for the project implementation.
