Nigeria is currently planning to export gas to Morocco and other countries along the sub-Saharan region, Nigerian Watch published, citing the Presidential Committee on Fertilizer Initiative.
In 2016, Nigeria and Morocco signed a joint venture to construct a gas pipeline that will connect the two nations as well as some other African countries. In the agreement, both countries discussed taking further steps toward the promotion of a regional gas pipeline project that will connect Nigeria’s gas resources.
