The Trans-Sahara Gas Pipeline
At Jamestown, Riccardo Fabiani has an article on the Trans-Sahara Gas Pipeline, a project to connect natural gas in Nigeria with Europe via a pipeline through the Saharan regions of Niger and Algeria. More gas from Africa (Nigeria, Algeria, Libya, etc) could help in the EU’s gas battles with Russia, for one thing. But, needless to say, there are some complications. Not least that each of the tree states involved has its own running insurgency: MEND in Nigeria, MNJ in Niger and AQIM in Algeria.
Well, read the whole thing.
