President Goodluck Jonathan has recently met with Eni's CEO Paolo Scaroni to discuss the strategies in the Nigerian hydrocarbon sector within the current international energy environment.

At the meeting, the two parties discussed the development of power generation through use of associated natural gas, in order to avoiding the gas flaring practice. In a join venture with several Nigerian national companies Eni contributes over 15 per cent of the power capacity in Nigeria.

Jonathan and Scaroni also discussed Eni's role in the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) production sector which contributes to the growth and development of the Delta regions, and Eni's future commitment to development of Nigerai's oil and gas industry.

  1. The small-scale LNG plant allows localized peak- shaving to occur – balancing the availability of natural gas during high and low periods of demand. It also makes it possible for communities without access to natural gas pipelines to install local distribution systems and have them supplied with stored LNG.
