In Nigeria, we have a 10% interest in Escravos GTL, a 33 000-barrel-per-day gas-to-liquids project which began beneficial operation in June 2014 and which will be ramped up to full capacity by the end of the 2014 calendar year.
Other partners in the project include the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Chevron Nigeria Limited. Using Sasol’s Fischer-Tropsch process technology and Chevron’s ISOCRACKING technology, the plant is designed to process 325 million cubic feet per day of natural gas from the Escravos Gas Plant expansion. The capacity of the plant, is currently standing at 34 000 barrels per day (5 400 m3/d) of synfuel.
