The engineering, procurement and construction of the planned $4.3bn Nigeria LNG Limited Train 7 plant will be done in-country by mostly indigenous companies, the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board has said.

According to the Executive Secretary, NCDMB, Simbi Wabote, the fabrication of pressure vessels, pipes, flare stack and other opportunities related to the Train 7 project will be domiciled in Nigeria. Wabote, who stated this at a public workshop on the Nigerian content aspect of the NLNG Train 7 in Abuja on Tuesday, warned that the era of building such projects in modules abroad to be shipped and coupled in the country was over.

The NLNG recently announced that it was shopping for $7bn to expand its operations. The expansion project will see to the construction of an extra gas processing train called Train 7 and investment in upstream gas that will ensure sustainable feed gas supply to its existing Trains 1 to 6. The target Final Investment Decision date is the fourth quarter of this year.
