Project Description

Seven Energy International Limited, an existing IFC client (project 34450), is a Nigeria and UK based oil and gas exploration and production ("E&P") and midstream company ("Seven Energy" or the "Company"). It is one of the few E&P companies in Nigeria with a focus on developing and commercializing gas that was historically stranded or flared, and supplying it to Nigeria's domestic market for power generation and industrial consumption. IFC's commitment to provide an anchor investment in the company's inaugural bond issue will help the company mobilize investors and successfully issue the bond. The bond proceeds will be used, among other things, to retire existing liabilities and continue funding the construction of the Company's gas pipeline network.
