Morocco, Nigeria Intensify Talks for Planned Gas Pipeline

A steel pipe through some of the most interesting countries on Earth in terms of security – what can go wrong? Not that transnational projects in Africa have a good track record. But only on cost, with all those transit countries, each expecting a fee, this won’t be a cheap pipe. Plus the risk of disturbance which – considering the countries – is more than zero. It would be easier, faster and I bet a good deal cheaper to do this whole thing through LNG. Nigeria could kickstart a mid-scale LNG economy around its coast and then expand into neighboring countries. Smaller cargos would fit flares better and many communities cannot take a full-scale LNG tanker load. Expand as you can – step by step. I designed a project concept in 2010.
