With an estimated capacity of 600MMscf/d, this pipeline, supported by AGPC & SPDC JV, will seamlessly integrate into the OB3 pipeline system, further notifying the nation’s gas infrastructure.

Upon their completion, these projects will expectedly augment domestic gas supply by approximately 500mmscfd/d, fostering a more conducive investment climate and fostering equitable economic expansion, heralding a new era of growth for Nigeria.
