DPR Issues Invitation for Expressions of Interest in the Nigerian Flare Gas Commercialisation Programme

Further to the issue of the Flare Gas (Prevention of Waste and Pollution) Regulations, 2018, which establishes a framework for the Nigerian Flare Gas Commercialisation Programme (NGFCP), the Department of Petroleum Resources issued an invitation for Expressions of Interest to participate in the competitive bid process for the award of ‘Permits to Access Flare Gas.’ It envisages the issuance of permits by the Minister of Petroleum Resources to third parties, via a competitive bid process, to capture and utilise such flare gas. If properly implemented, the NGFCP has the potential to achieve the Federal Government’s goal of eliminating gas flaring by 2020
