The Minister said Nigeria, with its proven 209 trillion cubic feet of gas reserves was ready and interested in the project.

On the fertiliser project, Ekpo said that, with the use of natural gas to boost the fertilizer industry and which would invariably improve agriculture, every aspect of the gas value chain should be exploited.
