Shell Gas B.V., a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc, has announced that all conditions for its Final Investment Decision (FID) have been met on a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) processing unit at Nigeria LNG (NLNG), according to a press release.

The new unit, known as Train 7, will add around 8 million tonnes per annum of capacity to the Bonny Island facility, making the total capacity reach around 30 million tonnes per annum. 

These conditions include formal commitment from the organisations providing financing for the project.

“Shell is positioned to support NLNG’s expansion by working with our government and other partners to develop new gas resources to sustain this growth and enhance both domestic and export gas supplies,” said Osagie Okunbor, Shell Companies in Nigeria and Managing Director.
