Shell to build gas-supply facility in Nigeria for Dangote Fertilizer
Shell’s Nigerian unit said on Sunday that it has decided to build a gas-supply facility to feed the Dangote Fertilizer and Petrochemical plant in Lekki, in Lagos State, local media reported.
The Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria’s new facility will supply 100 million standard cubic feet of gas per day from the Iseni field for a 10-year period.
