In order to increase the export of gas to Europe and other continents, Mallam Mele Kyari, Group Chief Executive Officer (GCEO) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC), stated that Nigeria was driving the initiative for significant investments in critical gas infrastructure in Africa.
With over 200 billion barrels of oil and over 203 trillion cubic feet of gas, Africa is one of the world’s top producers of oil; but, the GCEO noted that Nigeria cannot fulfill the aforementioned goals without proper infrastructure.
“However, we are working to build a backbone infrastructure that will take gas from Nigeria all the way to eleven countries into Morocco and, hopefully, in Europe”. We know that we have the resources to help everyone; which is why we are working in the West African sub-region, including Morocco, and all the way to Europe.
The ADIPEC conference also gives decision-makers, energy CEOs, and industry experts a forum to discuss the crucial elements impacting the change of the energy ecosystem; and its function as a significant global economic enabler.
