About NLNG

Employer: NLNG

Nigeria LNG Limited was incorporated as a limited liability company on May 17, 1989 to harness Nigeria’s vast natural gas resources and produce Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) for export.

The company is owned by four shareholders, namely, the Federal Government of Nigeria, represented by Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (49%); Shell (25.6%); Total LNG Nigeria Ltd (15%) and Eni (10.4%). It has wholly–owned subsidiaries: Bonny Gas Transport (BGT) Limited and NLNG Ship Management Limited (NSML).

It has wholly–owned subsidiaries: Bonny Gas Transport (BGT) Limited and NLNG Ship Management Limited (NSML).

With six trains currently operational, NLNG’s plant, on Bonny Island in Rivers State, is capable of producing 22 Million Tonnes Per Annum (MTPA) of LNG, and 5 MTPA of NGLs (LPG and Condensate) from 3.5 Billion (standard) cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of natural gas intake. NLNG’s near term expansion plans include construction of a seventh train to complement the existing six train structure, which when in operation will up the company’s total production capacity to 30 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG.

In all its business and social activities, NLNG’s driving force remains its vision to help in building a better Nigeria.

Three Ways to Easily Secure An IT Space

What are three ways to easily secure an IT space as a student? Majority of students find it very difficult during their industrial training, this is because of non-availability and also because at times students do not have the necessary experience to go about the search. Below are three ways you can increase your chances of success:

1. Start early

Some students love to wait till the time to begin is there, before starting their search. This is wrong.Those that easily get are those who have started submitting their letters to various firms, well in advance.Therefore start early to inform those around you and submit your letters requesting for industrial training well in advance.

2. Go to related firms

When you are searching for IT space, it is vital that you go to firms or companies closely related to your course of study. Most students focus all their efforts on oil and gas companies, ignoring other companies that they could learn very much from. This is wrong. Focus your attention on companies that are interested in your area of study and you will secure a place more easily.

3. Focus on Knowledge

Most times, students get places but reject them either because the pay is low or non existent. While it is true that money is very important, that should not be the sole aim of your Industrial training experience. So if the company has shown that you will learn a lot, it is better for you to sacrifice monetary gain for knowledge which will help in the future.
