The federal government has approved a proposal for the construction of a gas pipeline connecting Nigeria to Morocco. This was disclosed by the Minister of state for Petroleum, Timipre Sylva announcing that the federal government had given “its approval for the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) to enter into an agreement with the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) for the construction” of this gas pipeline.

An agreement had first been signed in 2016 then four years ago, Morocco’s King Mohammed VI and President Muhammadu Buhari agreed on a mega-project to transport gas along the Atlantic coast over 3,000 km.

The pipeline would be an extension of a gas pipeline that has been carrying gas from southern Nigeria to Benin, Ghana and Togo since 2010.

The pipeline is said to pass through 15 west African countries to Morocco and then to Spain and all of Europe according to the minister.

“This pipeline must pass through 15 West African countries to Morocco, and from Morocco to Spain and Europe,” said the minister.

Africa’s gas reserves have come under increasing scrutiny since the beginning of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, as the European Union seeks alternatives to its gas supplies from Russia.
