  • The Trans-Saharan Gas Pipeline (TSGP) as the trilateral project with a decadeslong history is officially called recently saw a fresh attempt at a revival when representatives from Algeria, Niger and Nigeria met in Niamey, Niger.
  • Once the $13 billion (€12.8 billion) pipeline is complete, it could transport up to 30 billion cubic meters (1 trillion cubic feet) of gas annually from Nigeria.
  • Botti also noted that Nigeria and Algeria will be the major suppliers of the gas, but everything would “boil down to the political will of the Nigerian government to ensure that the project kick-starts.”
