W. Africa Gas Pipeline : Ghana, others rely on project for power generation
The continuous attacks on gas infrastructure by militant groups in the Niger Delta, is threatening investments along the corridor of the $1billion West Africa Gas Pipeline.
The pipeline, which supplies the West African market, particularly Ghana, Benin and Togo with about 120 million standard cubic feet of gas per day, can only supply about 30 million to the market.
As a result of vandalism, the economies of these countries which are major markets targeted by this project for improved power generation have been greatly affected.
Analysts say until the Federal Government of Nigeria takes decisive action to effectively stop pipeline vandalism, the project will not attract the desired investments.
