The Nigeria Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission has issued notification for the conclusion of the request for qualification (RFQ) phase of the Nigerian Gas Flare Commercialisation Programme (NGFCP) 2022 in line with the accelerated delivery schedule
In furtherance to the Petroleum Industry Act 2021 (PIA), the NGFCP was restructured for enhanced value to investors, following in-depth assessment of current industry gas flaring situation and prevailing operational realities, coupled with changes in the socio-economic landscape since the NGFCP was initially conceived. Consequently, the RFQ was issued to enable interested parties to register their interest to participate on the programme.
The commission announced that 300 companies registered their interest to revalidate their prequalification status and submit statement of qualification (SOQ) as existing bidders and new participants, respectively.
Following successful conclusion of the SOQ evaluation exercise conducted by the bid evaluation team (BET), a total of 139 applicants were deemed successful and awarded the Qualified Applicant status in line with the provisions of the RFQ.
To that end, and in consideration of Section 105 (2) of the PIA and similar provisions enabling the commission in that respect, the commission hereby publishes the list of Qualified Applicants who will proceed to the request for proposal (RFP) phase of the NGFCP 2022.
On behalf of the board and management of the commission, commission chief executive Gbenga Komolafe, congratulated successful applicants and enjoined them to follow through with the subsequent stages of the programme towards becoming a permit holder/flare gas buyer in line with the applicable statutes. All qualified applicants shall receive further communications via their respective contact addresses and the NGFCP portal (ngfcp.nuprc.gov.ng) accordingly.
