(Business in Cameroon) - Société nationale des hydrocarbures (SNH), Cameroon’s company that negotiates oil and gas contracts, informs that on June 1, 2019, 41 companies were connected to the distribution network built by Gaz du Cameroun (GDC).
According to the SNH, those companies are now using natural gas as power source.
The state-owned company indicates that the network, which now spans over fifty kilometers, is being extended to allow the connection of more companies.
GDC, subsidiary of Victoria Oil & Gas, is SNH’s partner in the Logbaba association, which launched the production of natural gas at the Logbaba gas field in Douala.
This production helps supply clean energy, which is cheaper than fuel and gasoline, to companies located in Bassa and Bonabéri.
The average daily production of Logbaba plant exploited by GDC at the start of 2019 was 8.5 million standard cubic feet. This represents a 51% quarter to quarter increase. This year, the record level of 12.96 million standard cubic feet was reached on January 18, 2019.
The SNH estimates that the quantity of domestic gas supplied in the market between January 1 and April 30, 2019, is 8,058.61 tons.
