ND Western Ltd, an indigenous oil and gas company, has said it is getting ready to take the Final Investment Decision (FID) on its 10,000 barrels per day refinery in Uturogu, Delta State.

The Managing Director, ND Western Ltd, Mr Eberechukwu Oji, made the disclosure while speaking with newsmen on the sidelines of the 2022 Nigeria Oil and Gas conference and exhibition 2022 in Abuja.

Oji said the Front End Engineering Design for the project which was a Joint Venture with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation had been completed.

“We’re getting ready for the FID. Now you have to understand that before you take FID on a project, a number of things needs to be ready,” he said.

Utorogu field was discovered in 1964 and is located some 42 km south east of Warri. It currently produces about 10 Mbpd of oil & condensate and 300 MMscf/d of gas.

The Utorogu Flowstation was commissioned in 1968 with a 30 Mbpd processing capacity. It currently also has one Non Associated Gas (NAG) plant of 360 MMscf/d and a Field Logistics Base. The station processes fluids from The Utorogu oil wells and condensate from the Utorogu NAG Plant. The station also handles hydrocarbon fluid from NPDC’s Abura field, and sends high pressure gas to Ughelli West flow station for gas lifting.
