ROAD MAP TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUCCESSFUL FLARE GAS PROJECTS IN NIGERIA

As a signatory to the Paris Agreement, United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Zero-Routine Flaring Initiative by 2030, the Nigerian Government obviously committed to charting a new course in the global climate effort, initiated a plan that will disincentivize the flaring of gas through encouraging the commercialization and monetization of flare gas, by providing access and title to third party companies that will process the gas and sell the end products to the domestic market.
Aside the environmental impact of gas flaring, there is also the commercial side to it in terms of lost resources that would have amounted to revenue from export, gas-to-power or industrialization

KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SCHEDULE 40 AND 80 PIPES FOR GAS AND LPG (COOKING GAS) INSTALLATION IN NIGERIA

As the department of Petroleum resources cracks down on illegal Liquified Petroleum Gas(cooking gas) stations and poorly installed LPG facilities nationwide, it is important to know some key information around LPG installation and the plumbing of the lines using steel pipes.
To take LPG (cooking gas) from the storage tank and dispense into cylinders, an installer will have to connect the tank through the pumps, compressors to the dispensing units with steel pipes.. For this piece we will discuss the various schedules of steel pipes and their applications when it comes to the installation of LPG (cooking gas) plants in Nigeria.

  • Pipes with Schedule 40 come with a standard weight, and pipes with Schedule 80 come with extra strength.
  • Schedule 80 pipes are stronger than Schedule 40 pipes.
  • Though both pipes are used in Gas and LPG construction and Installation work, Schedule 40 is used more often.
  • Schedule 80 pipes are used where the pressure is very high. But for retail LPG installations,
    40 pipes are sufficient.

 

BETWEEN THE NIGERIAN AND BRAZILIAN LPG (COOKING GAS) MARKET- AN INVESTMENT PERSPECTIVE

The Brazilian market is a mature market. Brazil has 42 million Households. 95% use LPG. The consumption of LPG in Brazil currently stands at 7.3millionMTPA (metric tonnes per annum). There are 21 distributors and 65,000 sellers, trading 100 million cylinders and serving 42 million homes. This network covers the entire Brazilian territory and ensures the supply to 39,900,000 households. In 2008, Brazil consumed 6.7million MTPA and consumption grew 8.21% in 10 years to 7.3million MTPA in 2018.When compared to the Nigerian Market

HOW LOCAL CONSUMPTION OF LPG (COOKING GAS) CAN INSTANTLY CREATE 20,000 JOBS IN NIGERIA

Local consumption of LPG (cooking gas) can create 20,000 millionaires and help the government solve the unemployment gap in the country. It will create approximately 9000 business owners across the country;
each of the plants will employ at least 2 people which will create 18,000 jobs. The trucks will need a driver and 2 motor boys (truck driver assistants) which is an opportunity for another 2625 jobs.  The support businesses like mechanics for the trucks, LPG (cooking gas)plant installers etc that will spur the local economies around these businesses.

KOGI STATE LPG (COOKING GAS) CONSUMPTION ANALYSIS

The total population figure of Kogi state at the National population census 2006 shows a total human population of 3,278,487 with 641, 556 households.

Dividing the human population by the number of regular households, it shows that the average family size per house hold is 5.

3,278,487people/ 641, 556 households = 5 people per house hold.

From our retail experience, the average consumption of LPG for a family size of 6 in Nigeria is 20kg, so from the data in Kogi, the average family size in Kogi is 5 which translate to 16.6kg worth of cooking gas per house hold a month.

Annual Consumption: 16.6kg X 12months = 199.2kg

This research focuses on converting housholds that use Fire wood and Coal:

 

Energy Equivalence of 1kg of LPG to:

Firewood: 6.5 – 10.8 kg

Charcoal: 10.2 – 29.7 kg
*Source National Gas Policy

Taking the weighted average for the purpose of this research

Firewood: 8.65kg

Charcoal: 19.95kg

*This figure will be used to determine the amount of wood than be saved to positively impact on the environment as we go on.

The number of homes using firewood and coal is 447, 561 (2006 census) and 604,207 (2016 projections) which translates to

447,561 homes X 199.2kg= 89,154,151kg (89,154MT) worth of gas for domestic consumption alone

604,207 homes X 199.2kg= 120,358,034kg (120,358MT) worth of gas for domestic consumption alone.

A weighted average of the two consumption figures above was used to get the potential market size of Kogi state below:

Weather models indicate that there could be one last period of extreme cold weather before spring arrives. This suggests that natural gas prices could be well supported – which is good news for suppliers and producers.

Kiakia Daily Global Clean Energy And Gas News Round Up

The West African Gas Pipeline (GOA) which was first announced following a meeting between King Mohammed VI and President Muhammad Buhari of Nigeria, is expected to link Nigeria to Morocco along 5000km, serve 12 African countries and about 300 million potential consumers. About 40 organizations however, have signed a statement calling for the cancellation of the pipeline in the interest of the people and planet. The groups which include Friends of the Earth, and Oil watch believe the project will increase the debt burdens of the concerned countries and will increase consumption of fossil resources.
