Nigerian Power Barge
Giving Back to the Community:
We propose a gas processing barge to be deployed in the Nigerian creeks. The barge will process stranded gas that would otherwise be flared. Taking a waste product of oil production and using it to make money and give back to the local community.
- Royalty on Gas Produced
- Drinking Water
- Residential Power
- Propane for Cooking
Drinking water is produced using waste heat from compression and power generation. Power is generated from excess ethane from the LNG production process. Cooking propane is taken from the NAPTHA and propane production process.
Profitable Gas Production:
The barge will be 1,500 ton capable of operation back in the creeks. It will be outfitted with a small footprint processing facility. As an example, a 10,000,000 standard cubic foot per day (SCFD) plant is shown. In addition to the products delivered to the local community, it shall further produce:
- 100,000 gal/day of LNG
- 33,000 gal/day of propane or LNG
- 6,000 gal/day of NAPTHA (C5+)
- Sufficient heat and excess ethane for power and water production
The barge will further incorporate 5 days storage for periodic offloading to a shuttle barge. Based upon the maximum barge size for the creeks, it is estimated that the largest plant possible would be on the order of 30,000,000 SCFD, producing 3X the above number.
