Standard International Group’s expertise in West Africa is best evidenced in the successful Final Investment Decision taken by Government of Equatorial Guinea via GEPETROL and Marathon Oil for the US$1.3 billion LNG project in June 2003. Standard International Group served as the LNG technical advisor to the Ministry of Mines and Energy, advisor to the Office of the President, and crude oil pre-financing advisor to GEPETROL US$400 million equity requirement. The first LNG cargo was successfully lifted from the Bechtel constructed LNG facility six-months ahead of schedule to British Gas LNG Marketing Ltd. in May 2007.
