By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Aug. 3
-- Oil and gas production has begun from Shell Petroleum Development Co. of Nigeria’s five-field Gbaran-Ubie project in the Niger Delta of Nigeria.

At capacity next year the project will be able to produce 1 bscfd of gas and 70,000 b/d of oil. A gas processing plant that’s part of the project is yielding 200 MMscfd of gas from the first two of 33 wells to be brought online (OGJ, June 7, 2010, p. 52).
The Gbaran-Ubie fields cover 250 sq km in Bayelsa and Rivers states.

Most of the gas feeds the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas plant at Bonny. Gbaran-Ubie gas also will fuel electric power generation plants at Imiringi and Gbaran.
