Senegal: Support for the strategic Nigeria-Morocco gas pipeline project.

At a recent meeting in Dakar, Senegal's Minister of Petroleum and Energy, Antoine Félix Abdoulaye Diome, fervently expressed his country's commitment to the success of the Nigeria-Morocco gas pipeline, a large-scale project. In discussion with Amina Benkhadra, Managing Director of the Office National des Hydrocarbures et des Mines (ONHYM), who was on an official visit to Dakar with a delegation from the Office, Mr. Diome highlighted the crucial importance of this gas pipeline, initiated by His Majesty King Mohammed VI and former Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, for the region.

As part of this strategic initiative, Mr. Diome announced a specific program in collaboration with Morocco, aimed at strengthening this project, which promises to stimulate South-South cooperation between countries in the region. He also emphasized the considerable benefits this project will bring to local populations and economies.

The Minister recalled the deep historical ties uniting Senegal and Morocco, under the wise leadership of their respective leaders, H.M. King Mohammed VI and President Macky Sall. He also spoke of the richness and diversity of political, economic, social and cultural relations between these two brotherly nations.

Emphasizing the promising future of cooperation in the hydrocarbons sector, Mr. Diome stressed the importance of further strengthening the bilateral partnership in this crucial sector for both countries.

This meeting took place in parallel with working sessions between ONHYM and PETROSEN Holding, focusing on collaboration in the fields of hydrocarbon research, production and transportation, as well as follow-up on the Nigeria-Morocco gas pipeline project. A memorandum of understanding was signed between ONHYM and PETROSEN Holding concerning action programs for gas exploration, development and transportation, marking an important step in this collaboration.
