Nigeria, Algeria and Niger Sign Mou For Saharan Gas Pipeline to Europe

Few days after EU delegation to Nigeria inked a deal with the federal government to revamp and expand their Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) partnership, Algeria and Niger has been roped in to resuscitate a “dead” Saharan gas transit pipeline that will deliver gas to Europe through Span and Italy.

The Trans-Saharan gas pipeline is estimated to cost $13 billion and will send up to 30 billion cubic metres of gas to Europe every year.

According to the report as aired by Algeria’s Ennahar TV, the pipeline is expected to span around 4,000km upon completion. The pipeline will start from Warri, Delta State of Nigeria, and to end in Hassi R’Mel, Algeria, where it would connect to existing pipelines that run to Europe.
