Nigeria, Morocco to build world’s longest offshore pipeline
The Federal Government and Morocco are set to build the world’s longest offshore pipeline and second-longest pipeline in the world to carry gas from Nigeria to Morocco, running across 11 West African countries.
This was disclosed by Tolu Ogunlesi, one of the media aides of President Muhammadu Buhari via his Twitter handle on Sunday.
According to him, the partnership, which is between the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Group (NNPC) and ONHYM of Morocco, was originally signed by the two countries in June 2018.
He stated, “Nigeria (@NNPCgroup) and Morocco (#ONHYM) are teaming together to build the longest offshore pipeline in the world and second-longest pipeline in the world.
“It will carry gas from Nigeria to Morocco (& Europe), running across 11 West African countries. The Agreement for the Nigeria-Morocco Gas Pipeline (NMGP) was originally signed by the two countries when President @MBuhari paid a State Visit to Morocco in June 2018.
“When completed, the over 7,000 km long gas pipeline… will link #Nigeria with #Morocco, cross 11 west African countries and extend to Europe. It will be the longest offshore pipeline in the world and the second-longest pipeline overall.”
