This was revealed by the Managing Director of the Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas Company, Tony Attah at the signing of the Letter of Intent for the NLNG Train 7 EPC contract.
Attah said the Letter of Intent was a precursor to the commencement of the project.
According to him, the Final Investment Decision for the Train 7 would be signed next month.
