The pipeline project is supported by OPEC with the cooperation of 13 countries in West Africa. Its aims are to facilitate increased prosperity in the region by enabling monetisation of natural gas resources. It also aims to increase energy security, support the energy transition through access to less-polluting fuels, and offer a new, alternative export route to Europe.

Anthony Gaffney, RPS MetOcean Director – UK/EAME, said, “We are looking forward to supporting ONHYM and NNPC to gain a greater understanding of MetOcean conditions in this region. Our team has become well-known for our ability to provide accurate, reliable data; our services will support vital decision-making in the development of this prestigious project.”
