He said Nigeria had room to ramp up gas plants as current capacity was around 2 Bscf/d, adding that its
Project was at the development stage to be launched in the first quarter.
London-listed Nigerian firm Seplat is also boosting gas capacity. It plans to increase gross output from around 120-400 MMscf/d by 2017, as demand grows.
“We have done transport in the past, we are getting into [gas] processing right now,” Osunsanya told Reuters in an interview. “We are working ourselves up the chain.”
