- September 2022: The Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited signed agreements on a gas pipeline project with the National Office of Hydrocarbons and Mines of Morocco and the ECOWAS Commission.The Nigeria-Morocco Gas Pipeline was proposed in a December 2016 agreement between the NNPC and the Moroccan Office National des Hydrocarbures et des Mines (National Board of Hydrocarbons and Mines).The Federal Executive Council in June authorised the NNPC to enter into an agreement with ECOWAS for the construction of the pipeline.
The government says the gas pipeline, designed to be 7,000 km long, will reduce gas flaring in Nigeria and encourage the diversification of energy resources in the country while cutting down poverty through the creation of more job opportunities. It will further encourage utilisation of gas in the sub-region for cooking, and discourage desertification.
The pipeline will originate from Brass and terminate at North of Morocco, where it will be connected to the existing Maghreb European Pipeline that goes to Spain.
