Project development and proposal for conversion programme from LPG to natural gas for ADNOC.
International LPG gas conference held in Abuja: Prepared LPG policy documents, prepared conference materials, conference organisation including topics and breakout sessions, invited speakers.
We carried out a pre-feasibility study for an LNG to power project in Lagos, Nigeria. We performed economic analysis, project scheduling, setting out the complete roadmap for development of and implementation of the project, markets analysis, cost analysis, financial and economic analysis, modelling.
We prepared a detailed business plan for the newly established National Power Training Institute of Nigeria.
Design of pilot programmes for the conversion of urban and rural poor people to LPG: We carried out an energy access study, showing the distribution of urban and rural poor, their fuel consumption, fuel costs, conversion costs, ongoing costs. We analysed the negative health outcomes from existing fuels. We developed international case studies of LPG conversion programmes. We then designed a programme for the roll out of LPG conversion in two pilot States of Nigeria. The programme included a detailed budget.
Carried out reviews of Petroleum Industry Bill and Gas Transportation Network Code (with Adam Smith International).
Development and implementation of policy framework for the development of the domestic market for LPG in Nigeria: We carried out a review of the current LPG market (potential market and sources of supply), a strategic policy framework, proposed legislative changes, a regulatory framework, composition of an LPG public affairs directorate, and we held an LPG investors conference.
We assessed the development potential of modern bio-energy in Nigeria, covering bio-energy development potential, role of bio-energy in expanding access to modern energy services, development entry points. We analysed the Nigerian situation in detail, conducted international case studies (EU Renewable Energy Directive and Colombia case study) plus two pilot case studies of Nigerian states.
Support to international oil and gas licensing round (with Adam Smith International): We presented international best practice in petroleum tendering and its application to Afghanistan, as part the analysis after the first largely unsuccessful licensing round in Afghanistan. After the post round analysis, of which this formed a part, the second attempt at the first licensing round was much more successful.
For the Delegation of the European Communities in Nigeria, we initiated an energy dialogue between Europe and Nigeria in advance of the launch of the 10th European Development Fund. During two months a team investigated the energy situation in Nigeria, including visits to various States and energy sites, and interviewed many representatives of Government, energy companies, NGOs and industrial consumers. We developed around 14 recommendations of interventions, initiatives and actions the EC could adopt to develop the energy situation in Nigeria, in Europe’s interest.
Study into LPG supply, pipeline natural gas (PNG) distribution and renewable energy: We reviewed the current and potential market for LPG, gas distribution and renewable energy, and made recommendations on how to develop those markets.
Full business plan to support initial launch fund raising: We prepared and wrote the business plan for the new Ecowas Renewable Energy Centre, headquartered in Cape Verde, which received some €70m initial funding as a result of the business plan.
