Worley has been awarded a contract to provide main front-end engineering design (FEED Phase II) services for the Nigeria-Morocco Gas Pipeline (NMGP) project. The engineering study is progressing following the initial project planning. When completed, the over 7,000 km long gas pipeline, being promoted by the Office National des Hydrocarbures et des Mines (ONHYM) of Morocco and Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) of Nigeria, will link Nigeria with Morocco, cross 11 west African countries and extend to Europe. It will be the longest offshore pipeline in the world and the second-longest pipeline overall.
The NMGP pipeline is expected to traverse 13 countries and will help to boost local industries and economies by delivering a reliable and sustainable energy source. It will also support industrial development and create employment opportunities.
Additionally, the pipeline will provide a new avenue for countries along the route to export their gas to their neighboring countries and Europe. Delivering this project requires expertise from all over the world.
The overall FEED services will be managed by Intecsea BV, the offshore engineering consultancy business in The Hague, the Netherlands. This includes the development of the project implementation framework and supervision of the engineering survey.
The onshore FEED scope, the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA), and Land Acquisition Studies (LAS) will be delivered by the team in London, UK. The project will also be supported by the network of offices in Africa, and the global integrated delivery team in Hyderabad, India.
