It said: “The visit was in preparation of the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the NNPCL, Office National des Hydrocarbures et des Mines (ONHYM) of Morocco and the ECOWAS on 15 September, 2022 in Rabat, Morocco.”
During the visit, NNPC and the ECOWAS Commission reaffirmed their commitment towards the project, which, when completed, will provide gas to the West African countries through to the Kingdom of Morocco and subsequently to Europe.”

The statement also said NNPC and ONHYM will also sign two MoUs with Société Mauritanienne des Hydrocarbures (SMH) of Mauritania and Petrosen of Senegal, both of whom are expected to participate in the project.

Once completed, the project will supply about 3 billion standard cubic feet per day (scfd) of gas 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.

Other benefits of the NMGP Project include improving the living standards of people, integration of the economies within the Sub-region & mitigating against desertification through sustainable and reliable gas supply.
