WHAT WE DO

On behalf of the FGN, the NGFCP seeks to attract investments and develop a transparent market mechanism through a competitive procurement process for allocating gas flares.

At its core, the NGFCP will:

  • Develop a robust framework that balances project needs and oil and gas producer concerns;
  • Introduce a rigorous screening process and ensure that flare gas buyers meet the commercial and technical evaluation criteria to implement their flare down projects; 
  • Ensure oil and gas producers provide accurate flare site data; and 
  • Incentivise oil and gas producers, investors and government to support flare gas capture projects; and
  • Monitor and supervise all flare-out projects

To ensure the success of the NGFCP, we will: 

  • Demonstrate that the programme is not a threat to upstream producers’ businesses, but rather it is complementary; 
  • Identify and embed international best practices, policies and frameworks into Programme DNA; 
  • Design a robust programme that demonstrates strong business cases and consistency with the Paris Climate Agreement ;
  • Explore for third party funding through development banks, green climate funds, climate funds etc; and
  • Position the programme as a ‘win-win’ for all stakeholders. 
On behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria, this programme seeks to attract investments and develop a transparent market mechanism through a competitive procurement process for allocating gas flares, under clear and transparent criteria, to competent third party investors using proven technologies in commercial application globally. The Nigerian Gas Flare Commercialization Programme (NGFCP) is an opportunity for Government, industry, State Government, ethnic nationalities, and local communities to work together to resolve an oil field unacceptable practice.
