“During the visit, the NNPC Ltd 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.

”It added, “The NNPC and ONHYM would also sign two MoUs with Société Mauritanienne des Hydrocarbures of Mauritania and Petrosen of Senegal, both of whom are expected to participate in the project.”
