On June 2018 Morocco and Nigeria signed a joint declaration laying out the steps necessary for the completion of a gas pipeline connecting the two countries. The project is supervised by ONHYM and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and will span over 5,660 kilometers, onshore and offshore. The construction will take a total of 25 years to be completed.

Currently, the financial cost is being assessed and funding opportunities from development banks are being processed.

A front-end engineering design will take place after that, in order to involve the countries that the pipeline will cross and calculate the amount of gas that will be available for exporting to Europe.

This project will create a steady influx of opportunities for the next 25 years, as many midstream specialists will be called to assist and advice on the planning and construction of this important project, that will turn West Africa into a prime exporter to Europe, as imports from Russia and Eastern resources is starting to decline.

Major midstream projects are on the way

Major midstream projects have started construction thanks to the recent wave of hydrocarbon discoveries in Morocco and the increasing demand of energy. Many of these midstream projects are pipelines meant to transport lng. This provides many opportunities for international integration thanks to Morocco's great geographical and geological position.
