Nigeria and Algeria discuss joint gas projects

Sep 12, 2001 02:00 AM

A high level Nigerian energy delegation arrived in Algiers to discuss joint gas projects with Algeria. Nigeria's team led by Rilwanu Lukman, presidential petroleum and energy adviser, is to hold talks with its counterparts at Algeria's oil land gas giant Sonatrach on the possibility of linking the two countries by a gas pipeline.
The project, to be connected to Algeria's existing network, would boost gas exports to southern Europe where the North African country already sent 62 bn cmpy of gas, a government official said.

Industry sources said it would also allow the recovery of an average 250,000 bpd of gas equivalent burnt everyday in Nigerian hydrocarbon fields because of a lack of export outlets.
The development of gas reserves in south-eastern neighbour Niger, which the projected pipeline would cross, will also be discussed by experts of the two countries, officials said.
