Power to the People: Community owned energy in the Niger Delta

NNF managed a ‘gas to power’ project which aimed at utilising associated gas, either from a flow station or an oil well through a micro turbine, to generate electricity for domestic and small business consumption. The project was to deploy a 0.5 MW gas turbine to produce and distribute electricity to about 3,000 households and 500 small businesses as well as 5 health centres and 6 schools. The project design entailed a strong community ownership element: the entire assets and operations were to be managed and maintained by a community-based utility company to be owned by the community. Significantly, the intent of the project was to give communities a real stake in oil production in the region.
