Nigeria nears decision on flared gas hopefuls

More than 200 successful applicants set to be sent invites to workshop over monetising resources

The Nigerian Ministry of Petroleum Resources will later this week inform candidates seeking to qualify for participation in a bidding round to secure flared gas for monetisation under the Nigerian Gas Flare Commercialisation Programme (NGFCP) whether or not they have been successful.

Permanent Secretary Folasade Yemi-Esan on Thursday indicated the initial evaluation exercise covering some 238 Statements of Qualification was complete.

Yemi-Esan added that 205 applicants would be emailed this week with invitations to attend a Qualified Applicants’ Workshop 19th August at the Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF) in Abuja ahead of the Requests for Proposals (RfP) phase.

The 33 unsuccessful applicants will still have a chance to participate with a successful consortium, subject to acceptance by those consortia, but the burden of arranging such alliances will not be the responsibility of the NGFCP, according to programme manager Justice Derefaka.

The NGFCP was launched in December.

Nigeria aims to attract a broad array of entities to deploy innovative technologies to utilise flared gas at some 178 sites across the Niger Delta.
