The Floating LNG enters the commercial phase

The first half of 2018 was marked by the official start of natural gas liquefaction operations on the Hilli Episeyo floating plant, which arrived Cameroon on November 20, 2017. The first shipment of liquefied natural gas (LNG) intended for export, loaded in two cargoes, took place on May 1 and 17.

At the same time, the supply of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG, or domestic gas) to the local market began on April 09. The LPG produced supplies Yaoundé and its surrounding areas.

SNH also continued to supply the Kribi Thermal Power Plant with natural gas, in accordance with the needs expressed by the operator Kribi Power Development Company (KPDC).

A new oil field put on production

Tiko field was put on production on March 25, with an output of 1 500 barrels/day by Perenco Cameroon, operator of the Moabi Association.

However, national crude oil production fell by 15% as at June 30, to stand at 12.427 million barrels, due to the natural depletion of producing fields.
