Estimated read time: 1'

ETAFAT, a Moroccan company specializing in engineering and geospatial data, announced the commencement of topographical surveys for the northern section of the Nigeria-Morocco gas pipeline project.

This surveying phase will cover areas within Morocco, Mauritania, and Senegal.

The project's initiation follows a meeting in Rabat between ETAFAT, Morocco's National Office of Hydrocarbons and Minerals (ONHYM), and the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC).

Previously, N-Sea, a Dutch subsea solutions provider, announced seabed inspections in West Africa to support pipeline development.

Nigerian Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ekperekpe Ekpo, previously stated a 2024 start date for the project, aiming to connect Nigerian gas to the European market via participating West African nations.

Four memorandums of understanding were signed in June 2023 to solidify progress on this $25 billion project.
