Togo to start receiving natural gas from Nigeria in early 2010

May 27, 2009 02:00 AM

The first delivery of gas to Togo will take place from the first quarter of next year. This was announced on May 25, by Jack Derickson, director-general of the West African Gas Pipeline Company.
"What remains is to complete works in Togo and Benin and everything would be operational at the beginning of 2010," he assured.

The pipeline project (PGAO) is a sub-regional project which will allow for the channelling of natural gas from Nigeria to Benin, Togo and Ghana. Costing $ 500 mm, PGAO is one of the most important manufacturer/integrator projects which will ensure a lasting solution to energy problems in the sub-region.
For several years, countries in the sub-region have been facing serous shortages leading to significant and penalizing load shedding affecting both individuals and businesses.
