The plant, which is ready to be commissioned before the end of this year, will produce 3.0 million metric tpy of urea. It will consist of two trains, with each train having a capacity of 1.5 million tpy of urea and ammonia.

Jeffrey Ewing, Managing Director and Chairman of Chevron Nigeria, said: “We are looking forward to working with Dangote Fertilizer and maintaining a good relationship with the company. This agreement is very important for the country and Chevron is committed to Nigeria’s economic development.” 

Morgan Okwoche, Managing Director and CEO at GACN, said: “This is the beginning of fruitful relationship between Dangote Fertilizer, Chevron Nigeria and other parties. I am excited that this is happening during my term in office. You cannot imagine my satisfaction in having this contract signed at this time.”

Sanya Bajomo, Head, Gas Monitoring & Regulation Division at the Department of Petroleum Resources, said: “I am glad that GACN, Chevron and Dangote have signed this gas supply agreement. I want to say that this gas supply agreement is an issue of national interest and what happened today is going to be transmitted to the presidency. I believe everybody is going to benefit from this agreement when the fertilizer plant starts operation.”
