NLNG Train 7 Project To Create 140,000 Jobs

The Nigerian Liquified Natural Gas (NLNG) Train 7 Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) Contract would create over 40,000 direct jobs and provide employment for over 100,000 workers.

Speaking at the signing of the Letter of Intent of the $10billion project in Abuja, the Executive Secretary of Nigerian Content Development Monitoring Board (NCDMB), Simbi Wabote, said the target job numbers are very exciting.

Wabote said the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva, has the project as one of his focus areas to put an end to the drought of FID’s in the oil and gas industry in the last few years.

He also said apart from job opportunities and accruable revenues from the project, Sylva also noted the additional tonnage of liquified petroleum gas (LPG) to be produced from Train-7 as a key benefit to reduce importation into the country.

Wabote said the minister is also excited that Train-7 project attracts other upstream gas supply projects required to keep the LNG train busy. The project opens up other development opportunities for some gas fields in the shallow and deep offshore acreages such as HI, HA, HK, and Opoukunou-Tuomo fields.
