According to the International Gas Union (IGU) world LNG 2017 Report, Nigeria remains one of the top five exporters by share of LNG between 2015 and 2016.

The order of the top five exporters by share include; Qatar, Australia, Malaysia, Nigeria, and Indonesia; respectively. The report also revealed that the volume traded between Nigeria and Portugal was 0.88 (MTPA).

NLNG’s Bonny Island, the biggest and gas facility in the country, has the capacity to produce 22 mtpa of liquefied natural gas from its six trains.

Although Nigeria LNG (NLNG) produced 1.8 MT less in 2016, it still maintains its position as one of the top five exporters of LNG in the world. The recent reduction in production was due to domestic unrest in the Niger Delta region, as well as a period of extended maintenance during the first half of the year.
