Asiko Breaks Ground On First Dual Liquefied LNG Storage Terminal
Asiko Energy, one of Nigeria’s leading Power and Gas distribution companies, has formally kick started the construction of its latest project to increase accessibility of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) by Nigerians.
The ground-breaking ceremony of the dual-liquefied gas storage terminal located in Ijora, Lagos State, took place on December 13, 2021, and on completion, the facility will house 5000 metric tonnes of Propane/LPG storage and a 30 million-litre LNG storage tank.
Also when completed, the terminal under construction will be the country’s first dual liquified gas fuel terminal, with the ability to receive, store and distribute both LPG and LNG.
Speaking at the ceremony, managing director of Asiko Energy, Felix Ekundayo, said that the project “is the culmination of several years of dedication and hard work by our Company.
“As we commence the construction of our propane/LPG terminal, we are also laying the foundation for a co-located LNG terminal consisting of a full containment tank making this the first land-based LNG receiving terminal in Africa,” he added.
Ekundayo thanked the Board of Directors of Asiko Energy, shareholders, colleagues, financiers, and supply partner of 15 years and counting, the Nigeria LNG (NLNG) Limited.
The facility’s construction is being undertaken by OPTECH Engineering PVT Ltd of India as the EPC contractors and supervised by ILF Engineers Nigeria Limited as the project management company (PMC).
