Siemens Energy will provide a cryogenic boil-off gas (BOG) compression train for the Nigeria LNG (NLNG) Bonny Island Plant Train 7 Project. Located in Finima, Nigeria, the Bonny Island plant has been in operation since 1999. The plant has six trains currently operational. The entire complex is capable of producing 22 MTPA of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and 5 MTPA of natural gas liquids (NGLs) from 3.5 bcf/d of natural gas intake.

Train 7 will lift the total production capacity to 30 MTPA of LNG. The new BOG compression train will be driven by an electric motor and includes two Siemens Energy centrifugal compressors.

NLNG awarded the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contracts for its Train 7 Project to SCD JV, a consortium comprised of Saipem, Chiyoda, and Daewoo.

Manufacturing, testing, and packaging of the compression train will take place in Duisburg, Germany, with delivery slated for Q4 2021.

NLNG is an incorporated joint-venture that is owned by four shareholders — the Federal Government of Nigeria, represented by Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (49%), Shell Gas B.V.  (25.6%), Total Gaz Electricite Holdings France (15%), and Eni International N.A. N.V. S.àr.l (10.4%).
