Gasol plans to work with national gas
companies in West Africa not only to supply gas, but to develop
essential gas infrastructure.
The West African Gas Pipeline infrastructure is in place to
transport gas from Nigeria to Benin, Togo and Ghana, but it
currently operates at much lower volumes than its designed
capacity. Even if it operated at full capacity, the receiving
countries would struggle to utilise the gas because they lack
modern, efficient distribution networks.
Gas Distribution Networks
Gasol is pursuing several projects to assist the national
governments along the WAGP to develop national gas distribution
networks. The aim of this work is to make gas more widely available
to industrial and other business consumers and, eventually, for
domestic consumption as well.
