Nigeria, Morocco begin 5,600km gas pipeline project

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited and the Office National des Hydrocarbures et des Mines of Morocco, weekend signed the Memorandum of Understanding for the commencement of construction of the 5,600km Nigeria-Morocco gas pipeline. NNPC said the much-awaited Nigeria-Morocco Gas Pipeline project officially commenced following the signing of the MoU between the two countries and the Economic Community of West African States in Rabat, Morocco. It said the two countries and ECOWAS executed the MoU agreement on the project, which was a significant step in fulfilling the Federal Government’s drive towards harnessing Nigeria’s abundant gas resources. The NMGP is a 5,600km gas pipeline project, traversing 13 African countries, which, when completed will provide gas from Nigeria to the West African countries up to the Kingdom of Morocco and subsequently to Europe. Once completed, the project will supply about three billion standard cubic feet of gas per day along the West African coast from Nigeria, Benin, Togo, Ghana, Cote d’’ Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Gambia, Senegal and Mauritania to Morocco.
