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.
