Accugas, Mulak Energy seal First Gas-to-CNG Sales Agreement

- Advertisement -

Savannah Energy PLC announced that its subsidiary, Accugas has entered into a new Gas Sales Agreement (GSA) with Mulak Energy Limited.

The GSA is initially for a seven-year term. It envisages the supply of gas produced by Savannah’s majority-owned Uquo field for an initial two-year period on an interruptible basis and the subsequent five years on a firm contract basis.

During the Interruptible Gas Delivery Period, Mulak is able to nominate a maximum daily quantity of up to 2.5 MMscfpd.

Volumes in the Firm Delivery Period will be agreed by the parties before the end of the Interruptible Gas Delivery Period. The GSA is priced to reflect Mulak’s status as an industrial customer; Accugas, therefore, expects to see its weighted average gas sales price realisation increase as a result of this contract, without the need for any incremental capital expenditure beyond our previously announced plans.

Sales under the GSA benefit from a bank guarantee arrangement from an investment grade credit rated international bank.

Mulak is a member of the Mansour Group, the leading Egyptian multinational conglomerate with operations in more than 100 countries and annual revenues exceeding US$7.5 billion. The agreement for the supply of gas to Mulak’s Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Nigerian project represents Savannah’s first Gas-to-CNG sales agreement. Mulak initially plans to distribute CNG to its industrial customers in Rivers State with the CNG to be substituted for diesel in generators supplied by the Mantrac Group, also a member of the Mansour Group and one of the world’s largest dealers in Caterpillar machinery, power systems and equipment.

Mulak is in a unique position to exploit the synergies with Mantrac’s business in Nigeria through the conversion of Mantrac’s existing customer base of approximately 400MW of diesel-fuelled generators to CNG-fuelled generators. This is expected to provide Mantrac customers with up to a 40% saving in energy costs and a 30% reduction in their carbon footprint.

Sales under the GSA are expected to commence in 2022 and, following the initial two-year period, Mulak has indicated that it is seeking to expand its CNG sales on a pan-Nigeria basis to Mantrac customers.

Andrew Knott, CEO of Savannah Energy, said: “We are delighted to announce this new gas sales agreement with Mulak Energy and the Mansour Group. This recognises, Accugas’ status as the most reliable supplier of natural gas in Nigeria. Our first Gas-to-CNG agreement is hugely exciting as it represents Savannah’s entry into the compressed natural gas market, which we see as offering strong growth potential for our business over the course of the next decade. The CNG market significantly extends the reach of our existing 260km pipeline network into light industrial and even domestic power generation without the need for further investment in pipelines. For example, the Mansour Group subsidiary, Mantrac, currently has an installed customer base of approximately 400MW of diesel-fuelled power generation, which has grown every year for the last decade. I would like to thank the Mansour Group for choosing to partner with Accugas and we look forward to providing them, and their customers, with a reliable, lower cost source of energy for power generation with an estimated 30% reduction in the carbon footprint of their existing diesel generators.”
