OFFSHORE NIGERIAN GAS TO BE TAPPED
Chevron Corp. and Nigerian National Petroleum Corp. will begin the first phase of Nigeria's Escravos associated gas project this year (OGJ, Sept. 2, 1991, Newsletter). The project includes gathering and processing about 140 MMCfd of gas from Okan, Mefa, and Delta fields off Escravos. The project, to cost about $500 million, will use about 45% of the flared gas from the fields. Future phases will include five more fields off Escravos, using about 75% of flared gas.
