Gas starts flowing from Chevron’s Alen project off Equatorial Guinea

Chevron’s Noble Energy has achieved first gas flow from the Alen project offshore Equatorial Guinea that would also supply the country’s sole liquefaction facility at Punta Europa.

The project consists of a 70 km pipeline with a capacity of 950 million cubic feet of natural gas equivalent per day (MMcfe/d).

Gas from the Alen field, located in the Douala Basin, will go through existing onshore processing facilities, “maximizing development of current and future regional gas resources,” Chevron said in a statement.

According to Chevron, the gas project marks a “key step forward” for the country’s envisioned Equatorial Guinea gas mega hub. The hub seeks to utilize existing infrastructure and support a “thriving world-class” gas industry within Equatorial Guinea, it said.

This project facilitates the transport of gas from offshore production infrastructure to existing onshore facilities at Punta Europa, namely the Alba Plant but also the Marathon-operated Equatorial Guinea LNG plant.

Besides operator Marubeni, other shareholders in the LNG export facility include Marubeni, Mitsui & Co, and state-owned Sonagas.

The new gas supply will boost the 3.4 mtpa LNG plant that has since 2007 loaded over 700 tankers.
