The use of gas turbines for generating electricity is currently assuming a prominent position in the industrial sector of most African countries.
There are a growing number of projects under consideration and construction across most African countries particularly in Nigeria where there is an abundance of Gas reserves. This stems from the fact that gas as a transition fuel is cleaner than crude oil and thus is not a major contributor to global climate change.
It is reported that the global gas turbine market was estimated to be valued at USD 16.97 Billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 20.66 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 3.36%, from 2017 to 2022.
This increase in the amount of money spent on gas turbines is obviously attributed to rising demand for electricity, power generation, and gas-fired power plants.
Nigeria is more of a gas province with an estimated proven gas reserve of 203.16tcf, and currently over 200 companies had expressed interest in Nigeria’s 96 gas flare points for various commercial purposes. This would increase the government’s revenue and also address environmental challenges. This will spur industrialization, infrastructural development, and urbanization, thus increasing the demand for electricity. Author Energy is well positioned for collaboration and partnership with investors in developing new large gas-fired combined-cycle power generation as demand for gas turbines increases.
