The Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited and its joint partners have signed a gas supply and aggregation agreement that will support the 140-megawatts Aba Integrated Power Project in Abia State.

The agreement, which is between the SPDC, Geometric Power Aba Limited, and Gas Aggregation Company of Nigeria, was signed on Friday in Abuja, according to a statement.

By the agreement, SPDC will supply gas from the SPDC joint venture gas plant in Imo River traversing Abia and Rivers states to the power producer, Geometric Power Aba Limited, via a gas pipeline network already installed.

“This is a further demonstration of our commitment to supporting Nigeria’s industrialisation through gas,” the Managing Director, SPDC and Country Chair, Shell Companies in Nigeria, Osagie Okunbor, said.
