Nigeria’s president has called on Western governments to invest in the $25 billion Nigeria-Morocco Gas Pipeline (NMGP), while the nation’s top petroleum executive is talking positively about the long-planned $13 billion Trans-Sahara Gas Pipeline (TSGP) that would link Nigeria with Algeria.

A year ago, President Muhammadu Buhari launched Nigeria’s “decade of gas”, with his administration striving since then to create the necessary fiscal and legal conditions to stimulate investments.
