Project description

The Brass LNG facility is being built on Brass Island in Nigeria's Bayelsa state. The facility will consist of: two trains each with the production nominal capacity of five million tons of LNG per year; facilities for liquefied butane and propane extraction, segregation, and treatment; two 185,000 m3 LNG storage tanks; two 110,000 m3 LPG storage tanks; one 500,000-barrel capacity NGL tank; marine facilities for the products export; and accommodation for plant operators.

Brass LNG products will be loaded onto vessels by cryogenic pipelines and then transported to terminal facilities in the Atlantic Basin. The natural gas will then be transported to the United States and Mexico.

The project is expected to produce 10 million tons of liquefied natural gas per year during its 20-year lifetime.

Bechtel Corp. of the United States is the project manager of the plant site. Their responsibilities include site preparation, construction camp and construction dock, permanent operator housing and amenities, marine facilities and support services, tankage, utilities and offsite.

The project costs an estimated $8.5 billion.
