Seven Energy supplies gas to Notore Chemical
Seven Energy International Limited (Seven Energy), the indigenous Nigerian oil and gas development, production and gas distribution company has commenced the supply of natural gas to Notore Chemical Industries Plc. (Notore), a leading fertiliser and agro-allied company in Africa.
The commercial delivery of gas to Notore in Onne, Rivers State is being executed through Accugas, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Seven Energy.
According to Seven Energy, gas is being supplied at a rate of 25 million cubic feet per day (MMcfpd) as part of the feedstock to Notore’s fertiliser plant.
It added that by this supply arrangement, Seven Energy is enabling the Notore fertiliser plant to improve its operational efficiency enhancing the plant’s output. Natural gas is the core input into the production of fertiliser.
Chief Executive Officer, Seven Energy, Phillip Ihenacho said, “We are happy to announce the formal commencement of gas deliveries to Notore Chemical Industries Plc through our subsidiary, Accugas, a clear demonstration of our commitment to drive the industrialisation of Nigeria through the development of the Country’s huge natural gas resources. Through the supply of our processed gas we are providing a new source of feedstock to meet the company’s increasing requirements, whilst directly enabling the production of fertiliser that Nigeria’s burgeoning agriculture sector desperately needs to grow.”
Managing Director, Accugas, Stephen Tierney, said that the milestone represents another significant step for Accugas in our effort to increase domestic supply and utilisation of gas for the good of the Nigerian people and its economy. “By providing a clean, dependable, quality source of gas supply to the Notore plant, and doing so via an integrated end to end solution, we are demonstrating our clear commitment and execution performance toward enhancing domestic gas consumption for broader industrialisation.”
Seven Energy has continued to champion the Nigerian gas and industrial revolution through the exploration and production of natural gas, and, critically, its commercialisation through processing and distribution infrastructure, where it has invested over $1 billion in the south east region of the Niger Delta in the last 5 years. This enables Seven Energy to reach the end user and so support Nigeria’s evolving power sector and meet the growing energy needs of the industrial sector. In 2014 President Goodluck Jonathan commissioned the Uquo Gas Processing facility owned by Seven Energy.
