Country: Nigeria

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, yesterday, said the West African Gas Pipeline, WAGP, would be extended from Ghana to Cote d’Ivoire. According to a statement by the NNPC, the planned extension of the pipeline was part of the Federal Government’s West African energy integration policy. The statement noted that Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Maikanti Baru, who was represented by Chief Operating Officer, Gas and Power, Mr. Saidu Mohammed, disclosed this while receiving a delegation from Cote d’Ivoire in Abuja. NNPC Baru explained that the extension of WAGP to Cote d’Ivoire would facilitate easy transmission of gas within the West African sub-region. According to him, the visit would afford the NNPC and Cote d’Ivoire the opportunity to open a new vista for further bilateral discussion which would lead to the growth and development of the oil and gas sector. He said Nigeria and indeed the NNPC had been into the business of oil and gas exploration and production for over 50 years, stressing that the interface would enable the NNPC to share its vast experiences in the sector with the delegation. In his remarks, leader of the Ivoirian delegation and Deputy Director, Production, Ministry of Petroleum, Cote d’ Ivoire, Mr. Patrick Marshal, said the visit was to learn from Nigeria some of its best practices in personnel management, exploration and production in the oil and gas industry. The statement also noted that the highpoint of the visit was a technical session on the mode of operations of the NNPC in the petroleum sector.
