An update on the construction of Shell Gas Pipeline, located at KM 10, Eleka Area, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Oyo State. The project was initiated in September 2020, after a meeting between Governor Seyi Makinde and the management of Shell Nigeria Gas (SNG). A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the Oyo State Government and SNG for the construction of a Pressure Reduction & Metering Station (PRMS) and ancillary gas supply pipelines by Shell Nigeria Gas.
The construction of a Pressure Reduction & Metering Station (PRMS) and ancillary gas supply pipelines is funded by Shell Nigeria Gas on a Build, Own, Operate and Transfer (BOOT) basis. SNG will transfer the infrastructure to Oyo State after fifteen (15) years.
The project, awarded to Slot Engineering for Earth Works and Civil Engineering, commenced in May 2022 and has a project duration of six (6) months. Once completed, the project will supply gas to the Oyo State Independent Power Project (IPP) and other gas projects in the state. Read more about the IPP here.
