Company Introduction

The business mission of the Eleme Petrochemicals Company is to profitably manufacture a range of petrochemical products and to market these products locally and abroad.

The need for a Petrochemicals Industry in Nigeria was conceived for quite a long time. It was however, not until 1978 that the idea of using some refinery by-products as feedstock to produce some petrochemical products was conceptualized.

Due to the capital-intensive nature of the Petrochemical Industry, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) adopted a phased approach in the establishment of Up-Stream Petrochemicals Plants.

The EPCL Projects.
Since production started from trains 1& 2 in 1999, EPCL has been one of the fastest growing endeavours in the world. Train 3 was commissioned in November 2002 while 4 and 5 are expected to be on stream soon. When Train 6 is added in 2007, EPCL output will total about 22 metric tons per annum.

In addition, the Brass EPCL with 2 trains and an output of 10mtpa is expected to be on stream in the first quarter of 2009 while the Olokola (OK) EPCL which is a 4 train plant with an output of 20mtpa will have the first 2 trains commissioned in 2009/2010.

The West Africa Gas Pipeline
The Final Investment Decision of the West Africa Gas Pipeline was signed on 16th December 2004. The initial capacity utilization of the pipeline which is 200 mmcf/d is expected to increase to about 460 mmcf/d by 2026 This project which is of strategic importance is expected to foster cooperation and economic development in the sub- region in the spirit of the New Partnership for African Development (NEPAD).

The Tran Saharan Gas Pipeline.
A Tran Saharan gas pipeline running from Nigeria to Algeria is under consideration. The objective is to make Nigerian piped gas available to Europe. The technical and commercial viability of this project is however being studied through a feasibility study being undertaken by a consultant on behalf of NNPC and Sonatrach.

Gas to Liquids & Natural Gas Liquids
These include the Escravos Gas- to- Liquids with a capacity of 34,000 barrels per day, the Escravos Natural Gas Liquids 1, 2 & 3 as well as the Mobil Natural Gas Liquids 1& 2.
