The COO disclosed this in an interview shortly after his participation in a panel session at the Africa Energy Forum with the theme: “The future of Energy Transformation in Africa: Clean Energy and Business Sustainability held on the sidelines of Oil Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston, Texas.

Ezugworie added that the coming on stream of Assa North Ohaji South (ANOH) and Sapele gas plants later this year would ramp up its production capacity to 850 million scf

He maintained that the entire 850 million scf of gas would be dedicated to the domestic gas market to support the economic growth.

He explained that the injection of the 850 million scf of gas would go a long way in solving problems around gas-to-power because the gas produced from its Oben gas plant goes into the national grid, thereby boosting power generation capacity.
