WAGPP governments approve construction of West African Gas Pipeline Project

Apr 25, 2005 02:00 AM

Governments of the four cooperating countries in the trans-boarder gas transmission initiative known as the West African Gas Pipeline Project (WAGPP), Nigeria, Benin, Ghana and Togo, have granted construction licences to the West African Pipeline Company (WAPCo), to build a transmission pipeline at the cost of $ 590 mm.
The West African Gas Pipeline covers a distance of 678 km on-shore and off-shore, which will be laid with high-pressure trans-national pipeline, to transmit natural gas from Nigeria to customers in Benin, Ghana and Togo.

The Gas Pipeline is expected to have maximum capacity of 470 mm cfpd. Construction of the pipeline is expected to commence by June 1, 2005, and will be completed before December 2006, the take-off month for the delivery of first natural gas to the West African sub-region.
Chairman, Committee of Ministers of the four collaborating West African countries Mr Kamoru Fasasi, while handing-over the instrument of licence to board chairman of WAGPCo, Engineer Funsho Kupolokun, said the event marks a decisive effort to bring the project to its logical conclusion.
