Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), ConocoPhillips, Eni and ChevronTexaco (CVX) announced the signing of a Heads of Agreement to conduct the front-end engineering and design (FEED) work for a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility to be constructed in Nigeria's central Niger Delta. The partners have agreed to form an incorporated joint venture, to be known as "Brass LNG Limited," to undertake this project.

This agreement follows completion of conceptual studies that assessed the viability of a new onshore LNG facility in the region to be built at the oil Brass Terminal operated by Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC). The FEED will be for two trains, each nominally sized at 5 million metric tons per year. Natural gas supplies for the facility will come from substantial gas reserves within oil and gas fields already operated by existing NAOC and ChevronTexaco joint ventures.

"We are extremely pleased to have reached this stage of the Brass LNG project," said Dr. J.E. Gaius-Obaseki, Group Managing Director NNPC. "This will be a world-class LNG facility and an important and strategic opportunity for the co-venturers to reduce gas flaring in Nigeria. Furthermore, it will be an additional opportunity for Nigeria to monetize part of its vast natural gas reserves."

The executives representing ConocoPhillips, Eni and ChevronTexaco have jointly announced that their participation in the project enables their respective companies to be important players in helping to meet the growing worldwide demand for clean energy, and strengthens their long-term relationship with NNPC and the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The FEED studies are expected to be completed in 2004, and the facility is targeted to be operational at the end of 2008. At the same time, the companies are in the process of developing LNG marketing strategies and plans. The primary market for the first train will be the United States, where average daily sales volumes from this project are estimated to be around 700 million standard cubic feet of natural gas.
