Morocco-Nigeria gas project ‘on track’ amid controversy

A Moroccan government spokesman said the Morocco-Nigeria gas project (a gas pipeline project with Nigeria) was “on the right track” amid a dispute with Algeria and Spain over gas supplies.

Morocco’s official MAP news agency quoted Mustafa Baitas as saying that the project is proceeding in line with the vision of the leaders of the two countries. He said the project is part of a “strategic partnership” between the two countries.

The comments come after a recent dispute between Spain and Algeria over gas supplies to Morocco.

Algeria last week threatened to cut its gas supply to Spain if its supplies ran out in another country – Madrid’s decision to supply gas to Morocco in the opposite direction via a pipeline connecting Spain to Morocco. After.

Tensions between Morocco and Algeria have deepened in recent months. The two countries have long had controversial relations – particularly over the disputed region of Western Sahara.

The Morocco-Nigeria gas project was commissioned by the King of Morocco and the Nigerian President and a cooperation agreement was signed in May 2017 according to MAP.
