The government of Morocco and state-run Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) have reassured their commitment to carry out the natural gas pipeline cooperation agreement (PCA), African Press Agency (APA) reported.
The agreement was one of a number of Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) signed between the two countries during a visit by the King of Morocco Mohammed VI to Nigeria in December 2016.
Mele Kyari, Managing Director of NNPC, discussed with the Moroccan Ambassador to Nigeria, Moha Ou Ali Tagma, establishing the pipeline to supply feedstock gas from Nigeria to Morocco and then to Europe.
Other agreements concerned developing a petrochemicals plant in Nigeria to produce ammonia, as well as agricultural cooperation for technical and vocational training.
Kyari voiced the commitment to applying the agreements with Morocco, promising to “move forward and ensure that agreements, especially those that are particularly related to the oil and gas industry, are delivered in record time.”
