The Uquo Gas Plant (CPF), with initial processing capacity of 200mmscf/d represents the biggest gas supply system by a Nigerian indigenous independent operator or consortium, able to satisfy the fuel gas requirements of the Ibom and Calabar IPPs as currently installed, and other customers currently making their demands known. The plant came on stream in December 2012 and is currently supplying Ibom IPP, and will commence supply to Calabar IPP in the fourth Quarter of 2014.
In addition to processing non-associated gas from the Uquo Field, this facility will also provide a processing outlet for associated gas from other nearby marginal fields; Qua Iboe (operated by Network E&P) and Stub Creek (operated by Universal energy). The associated gas from these fields will be delivered to the Uquo Facility by gas pipelines, eliminating gas flaring from crude oil operations and allowing these fields to produce their assets economically.
The CPF is operated by Frontier Oil Limited.
