Chevron reports first gas from Alen gas monetisation project

02 Mar 2021

Chevron has announced the production of first gas from the US$330m Alen gas monetisation project, offshore Equatorial Guinea (EG) as per schedule.

Noble Energy, which is currently owned by Chevron, had sanctioned the project in April 2019. The company is partnered in the Alen field by Glencore, GEPetrol, Atlas and Gunvor.

The Alen gas monetisation project comprises a 70km pipeline that holds the capacity to transport 950 million cubic feet of natural gas equivalent per day (MMcfe/d) from the Alen field. The field is located in the Douala Basin.

The gas from the field is processed via onshore existing facilities to maximise development of current and future regional gas resources, said Chevron.

The facilities include Alba Plant’s liquefied petroleum gas processing plant and EG LNG’s liquefied natural gas production facility (EG LNG), both located at Punta Europa in Bioko Island. Both the facilities are operated by Marathon Oil.

Noble Energy claims to have discovered three trillion cubic feet of gross natural gas resources in the Douala Basin. The Alen gas and condensate field is mainly located in Block O (95%) and is partly contained in Block I (5%).
