Osagie Okunbor, managing director of Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria (SPDC), said it was “on the verge of making a final investment decision” on a project in the city of Asa that would have a capacity of 300 million cubic feet. He declined to specify the sum of money being considered as a possible investment. Okunbor told journalists Shell was putting more emphasis on gas and reducing the oil portion of its footprint in Nigeria, although he added that the company was “still a significant player in onshore (oil)”.
