When completed, the over 7,000 km long gas pipeline, being promoted by Office National des Hydrocarbures et des Mines (ONHYM) of Morocco and Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) of Nigeria, will link Nigeria with Morocco, cross 11 west African countries and extend to Europe. It will be the longest offshore pipeline in the world and the second longest pipeline overall.

The NMGP pipeline is expected to traverse 13 countries, and will help to boost local industries and economies by delivering a reliable and sustainable energy source. It will also support industrial development and create employment opportunities.

Additionally, the pipeline will provide a new avenue for countries along the route to export their gas to their neighboring countries and Europe.

Delivering this project requires expertise from all over the world.

The overall FEED services will be managed by Intecsea BV, our offshore engineering consultancy business in The Hague, the Netherlands. This includes the development of the project implementation framework and supervision of the engineering survey.

The onshore FEED scope, the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) and Land Acquisition Studies (LAS) will be delivered by our team in London, UK. The project will also be supported by our network of offices in Africa, and our global integrated delivery team in Hyderabad, India.

Advisian, our global consulting business, will explore the acceleration of electrification and the feasibility of energy self-sufficiency in the region. Our UK and Madrid offices will set out the potential to use renewable energy resources to power the pipeline and reduce the project’s carbon footprint.

'Being part of a project that not only looks towards sustainability, but also contributes to boosting regional economy and supports the development of local communities is an incredible opportunity,' said Ping Liu, Managing Director of Intecsea.

'The NMGP is a project that reflects our purpose of delivering a more sustainable world. We look forward to working with ONHYM and NNPC as we journey into a new chapter for West Africa.'
