Seplat Energy Completes ANOH Gas Plant

The ANOH gas plant of Seplat Energy PLC, an independent energy firm in Nigeria, has declared its completion.

According to Seplat Energy’s updated timeline, the ANOH gas plant installation works attained mechanical completion on December 29, 2023, the company revealed in a release on Wednesday.

The company’s Chief Financial Officer, Emeka Onwuka, said “This milestone has been achieved without a single recordable Lost Time Incident (LTI) across 11 million man-hours,” saying that it was a testament to the focus of the whole team on safe and secure operations.

With a Phase One processing capacity of 300mmscfd, the ANOH gas plant is being delivered by the ANOH Gas Processing Company, an incorporated joint venture between Seplat Energy and NNPC Gas Infrastructure Company Ltd.

The PUNCH discovered that when the plant started up, it would supply consumers with dry gas, condensate, and LPG, or cooking gas.

Seplat Energy revealed that the condensates will be sold to the outside market, but the cooking and dry gas would be sold locally to Nigerians.

“It is envisaged that AGPC will sell the gas and LPG domestically, and the condensates to the international market,” Onwuka said in a statement.

The statement read further, “The other key steps to first gas, as outlined in the Company’s Interim Results announcement, were the drilling and hook-up of the Upstream wells and completion of essential third-party infrastructure: the OB3 pipeline river crossing and Spur Line connecting OB3 to the gas plant.

“Completion of the third well (ASSN-05) was previously announced and the fourth and final well (ASSN-06) planned ahead of first gas has also now been completed by the upstream unit operator, SPDC.

“We now look forward to the completion of the necessary plant pre-commissioning activities and essential third-party infrastructure which will enable commissioning of the gas plant and commencement of operations.”

The Chief Executive Officer of Seplat Energy, Roger Brown, was quoted as having said, “ANOH is an important strategic project for Seplat. It will roughly double our gas production, and we are focused on the path to the first gas.’’
