Midstream Operations

Our midstream Gas Plant operations form a crucial component of our energy supply chain, focusing on natural gas processing, transportation, and distribution. Through gas gathering and processing, transmission pipelines, compression facilities, storage, LNG terminals, and distribution networks, we ensure the reliable and safe delivery of energy from our production sites to our end users. Our gas processing plants are currently located on our Ogbele and OML 34 assets. Aradel has invested heavily in infrastructure to harness the full potential of the Ogbele asset. The Ogbele Gas Processing Plant was built by Aradel to develop and monetise the gas Resources on the Ogbele Field while complying with the Federal Government’s Gas Flare policy for production operations. A 12’’ x 20km Gas Delivery Pipeline was constructed to deliver gas processed from the Gas Plant to the Bonny NLNG. In 2012, Aradel became the first Nigerian Independent Oil & Gas Company to deliver non-JV Gas volumes to the Bonny NLNG system via a Gas Sale and Purchase Agreement (GSPA) with theShell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria/Total Energies/Nigerian Agip Oil Company/Nigerian National Petroleum Company Joint Venture. Since then, Aradel has begun thedelivery of domestic gas supply to local off-takers. Other private companies have also expressed interest in purchasing gas directly from the Ogbele Plant. The Company captures all theassociated gas that would have been flared and compresses it to create value. Routine flaring is completely eradicated, and only Non-routine (pilot) flares can be seen at the facilities. Aradel endorsed the ‘Zero Routine Flaring (ZRF) by 2030’ initiative of the World Bank and in recognition of its effort, the company received the Excellence Award from the Global Gas Flare Reduction (GGFR) Forum, an arm of the World Bank in 2015. The company is aiming for zero gas flare in other assets where it has interests.In addition, our OML 34 asset which is operated by ND Western Limited (a company in which Aradel is a significant shareholder) has two gas processing plants with a combined production capacity of over 400MMscf/d. Due to its high gas reserves and production capacity, the asset supplies gas into the West African Gas Pipeline (WAGP) to neighbouring countries including Benin, Togo, and Ghana. Associated gas gathering projects and non-associated gas projects are ongoing on the asset.
