Nigeria, Morocco gas pipeline study ready – NNPC GMD

The Group Managing Director (GMD), Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Maikanti Baru, yesterday said Nigeria and Morocco have completed the feasibility study for the construction of the 5,660km Nigeria-Morocco Gas Pipeline.

He said the pre-Final Investment Decision (FID) for the pipeline was currently ongoing, adding that the facility would boost the region’s industries when completed.

Baru said: “We need to collaborate especially in the area of infrastructure. Today, Nigeria and Morocco are collaborating to construct a gas pipeline that will traverse at least 15 West African countries and connect the existing Europe gas pipeline. The feasibility study has been concluded and the pre-FID greenfield optimisation study is currently ongoing.
