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

Subsequent to the FID, NLNG has announced awards of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts.

Once operational, the new unit, known as Train 7, will add around 8 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of capacity to the Bonny Island facility, taking the total to around 30 mtpa.

Currently operating six processing units, or trains, the decision to build a seventh will bolster NLNG’s contribution to the development of the country through generating revenues for the Nigerian government and delivering key natural gas products for domestic use.
