NLNG was incorporated as a limited liability company on May 17, 1989, to harness Nigeria's vast natural gas resources and produce Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) for export.
The company has a wholly-owned subsidiary, Bonny Gas Transport (BGT) Limited, which provides shipping services for NLNG and Nigeria LNG Ship Manning Limited which provides personnel for all of NLNG’s Vessels. LNG is delivered to an ever-expanding list of ports in cities around the world. 
In November 1995, a Final Investment Decision (FID) was signed by the Shareholders to build a Liquefied Natural Gas Plant in Finima, Bonny Island in Rivers State.
In December 1995, a consortium of engineering firms comprising Technip, Snamprogetti, M.V. Kellog and Japan Gas Corporation (TSKJ) was awarded a turnkey Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract for the construction of the Plant, the Gas Transmission System and the Residential Area.
Construction of the plant site commenced in February 1996 and by August 1999, one of the two trains (Train 2) was completed.
On August 12 of the same year, the plant was ready for start-up, and production of LNG commenced on September 15. The second train of the Base Project, Train 1, came on stream on February 27, 2000. Train 3 came into operations in November 2002.
NLNGPlus, comprising Trains 4 and 5, came on stream in November 2005 and February 2006 respectively, NLNG Six, came on stream in December 2007.
The plant has rapidly and successfully made the transition from a construction project to a stable production operation, with a robust delivery chain underpinned by relentless focus on asset integrity and HSE assurance. This has made NLNG to achieve, within a short span, the status of a very reliable supplier of LNG in the Atlantic Basin, serving the European and North American markets.

The Head office is at  Plot 1684 Sanusi Fafunwa Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria.
