Russia-Ukraine crisis: EU begs Nigeria to close gas supply gap 

0 50

With oil exports from a critical pipeline on Russia’s Black Sea Coast fully halted last Wednesday, the United States and the EU quickly moved in by creating a task force committed to reducing dependence on Russian energy supplies.

The appeal for Nigeria’s intervention was made by Ambassador Samuela Isopi, during a courtesy call by EU Ambassadors to Minister of State Petroleum Resources, Mr.Timipre Sylva, in Abuja last week

She appealed to Nigeria to step into that gas supply chain as an alternative to Russia, adding that the country must not allow the opportunity to pass it by.

She particularly expressed concern over the spate of attacks on Shell, Eno and Total Energies’s gas infrastructure that led to the declaration of force majure by the companies and noted that the development was of great concern to Europe.
