Shoreline Signs $300m Gas Deal With Shell

Base on information gathered which reveals that Shell said in June that it would place more emphasis on gas rather than oil in the West African country, which has the world’s ninth-largest proven gas reserves at 187 trillion cubic feet.

Shoreline said the agreement was to develop, buy, market, distribute and sell natural gas in the Victoria Island, Ikoyi, Lekki and Epe districts – areas that contain the city’s business hub and some of the country’s most expensive residential properties.

It said the agreement provided exclusive rights to distribute and sell gas in those areas.
