Equatorial Guinea is set to construct the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage and regasification plant in West Africa, advancing efforts to monetise gas resources through the creation of a domestic gas-to-power infrastructure.
Located at the Port of Akonikien, the plant will enable the storage, transportation and distribution of LNG to the country’s mainland; 12 bullet tanks will carry 14,000 cubic metres of storage capacity, supported by a truck loading station and 12kms of ten-inch gas and diesel pipelines. The project will be led by local construction and engineering firm Elite Construcciones; The project forms part of Equatorial Guinea’s regional LNG2Africa.
Other major suppliers include pipe supplier PFF Group, who manufactured 12,400 metres of pipes, shipping agents D&B Shipping Ltd. who facilitated the shipment of 22 40-foot open-top containers, and Meakin Logistics UK. Elite Construcciones also worked closely with German companies Noorwerk and ESC on the design and construction of the plant.
