One of the main considerations is the potential development of gas reserves from the OML 122 field, 40 km (25 mi) from the coastline of southern Nigeria.
The study is part of Project Dawn, a three-year, $1.2-billion program that includes construction of a pipeline network to deliver natural gas to the Escravos – Lagos Pipeline System, designed and built under Penspen’s supervision over two decades ago.
Penspen’s work will include an evaluation of the OML-122 field development, subsea gas pipeline, and onshore central processing facility. The study will seek to determine the extent of new pipeline and facilities required, and quantify the overall investment required for the project.
Gas from Project Dawn will supply power plants and other industrial users in Nigeria, providing 250 MMcf/d under the gas sale and purchase agreement between Sirius Oilfield Support Services and NNPC subsidiary Nigerian Gas Co.
