NGFCP Purpose and Driving Principles 

The NGFCP must: 

  • Reduce gas flaring; 
  • Benefit Niger Delta communities;  
  • Positively impact the Nigerian economy; 
  • Present a market-driven solution for flare down; 
  • Not adversely impact producers’ upstream production or safety; and
  • Be bankable for investors and lenders.
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.
