For the export of gas, Nigeria LNG has developed a terminal on the left bank of Bonny River between Bonny Town and the ocean corner. The works include a loading jetty for large LNG-carriers and a jetty for material off loading, tug boats and passenger ferries in Bonny River.
The facilities were designed in 1996 and completed in 1998. In 2001 the facilities were extended by a second LNG loading jetty.

The following services were provided:

  • hydrographic surveys (topography, bathymetry, currents, waves, sediments)
  • 2D numerical modelling of currents, waves and sediment transport (FINEL2D)
  • satellite imagery analysis on shoreline development
  • analysis of maintenance dredging volumes
  • determination of mooring loads (TERMSIM)
  • evaluation of navigational procedures
  • optimisation of lay out of marine structures
