UTILISATION OF FLARED GAS AS A FEEDSTOCK FOR GAS TURBINE IN NIGER-DELTA

By NDINEMENU, BENEDICT (G2017/MSC/CGRP/FT/077)

Recently, Nigeria is among the top twenty nations in the world with huge natural gas reserves, yet has one of the worst electric power generation and supplies in the world. Her gas reserves are over 186 trillion standard cubic feet (TCF) which is more than three times the value of her crude oil reserves. But significant amount (about 65%) of the associated gas produced during the production of crude oil is currently being flared daily.

This research is focused on one of the ways to drastically curb the environmental and health issues associated with flared gases by designing a gas turbine capable of utilizing the flared gases, and the  economic potential of using this  flared gas particularly in the Niger Delta, as a feedstock to produce low-cost, reliable and sustainable supply of electricity.

With that the livelihood in the region can significantly be improved by promoting a shift from flaring the associated gas to collecting it for use as a gaseous fuel and for electricity generation.
