Chariot signs pipeline tie-in pact in Morocco
Africa-focused Chariot has signed a pipeline tie-in agreement with the Office National des Hydrocarbures et des Mines (ONHYM) securing access to the Maghreb Europe Gas Pipeline (GME) in Morocco, the company said on September 7.
The GME, owned and operated by ONHYM, runs from eastern Morocco through to Tangiers in the north and subsequently across to Spain. This agreement will enable the gas produced from the Anchois gas project, offshore Morocco, to be transported via the GME to different potential off-takers, Chariot said.
“This moves Chariot a step closer towards delivering first gas from the Anchois gas field to potential customers using the GME pipeline,” Pierre Raillard, head of gas business & Morocco country director at Chariot, commented.
“The Anchois gas project is a highly strategic asset given the continued volatility of global energy markets and combined with its proximity to the international GME pipeline, we are well placed to bring gas online as quickly as possible,” he added.
