Savannah starts gas supply to Nigerian power plant
UK’s Savannah Energy has started gas sales to First Independent Power’s (FIPL) Trans Amadi power plant in Port-Harcourt, Nigeria, the company said on June 22.
In April this year, Savannah executed an addendum to its gas sales agreement with FIPL, allowing the latter to increase the quantity of gas purchased to up to 65mn ft3/day from 35mn ft3/day to allow supply to both its Trans Amadi and Eleme power plants, as well as the Afam power plant.
The FIPL Trans Amadi power plant has a power generation capacity of 136 MW but the capacity had recently been limited due to gas availability issues from its primary supplier. Savannah started gas supply to the Trans Amadi power plant on June 19, which has allowed for the immediate resumption of power generation and evacuation to Nigeria’s national grid.
Savannah is developing energy projects in Africa and is active in Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria.
