A data and analytics company,  GlobalData, has said that Nigeria will contribute around 35per cent of Africa’s total planned and announced oil and gas new-build trunk/transmission pipeline length additions between 2019 and 2023.

The company’s latest report, ‘Global Planned Oil and Gas Pipelines Industry Outlook to 2023 – Capacity and capital expenditure outlook with details of all planned pipelines,’ revealed that Nigeria was expected to provide 6,601.5kilometres of new-build pipeline by 2023.

It noted that  most of the additions would  constitute natural gas, at 6,460kilometres, while crude oil pipelines will account for 142km.

According to the company’s oil and gas analyst,  Varun Ette, “in Nigeria, 11 new-build pipelines are expected to start by 2023. Of these, eight are planned projects and the remaining three are from early-stage announced projects.

“Trans Saharan Gas is the longest upcoming pipeline in the country with a length of 4,400km. This announced natural gas pipeline is expected to start operations in 2021.”

He stressed that Niger had the second highest new-build pipeline additions in Africa with two new-build pipelines, Niger–Benin and Zinder–Torodi pipelines, expected to start operations with lengths of 1,980km and 1,070km, respectively by 2023.

Niger–Benin is a crude oil pipeline, while Zinder–Torodi is a petroleum products pipeline.

Ette said: “Followed by Niger, Algeria is expected to add 2,007.3km of infrastructure from five planned and two early-stage announced pipelines by 2023.

“Haoud El Hamra–Bejaia II is the major upcoming pipeline in the country with a length of 667.7km. The crude oil pipeline is expected to start operations in 2022.”
