Chinese firm to construct 767-km Ethiopia-Djibouti gas pipeline


Addis Ababa, February 18 - Neftegaz.RU. According to Xinhua, Chinese firm Poly-GCL Petroleum Group Holdings Limited (Poly-GCL) is to construct the 767-km Ethiopia-Djibouti natural gas pipeline, the Ethiopia Ministry of Mines and Petroleum (MoMP) announced.

 

MoMP said Ethiopian and Djiboutian government officials have agreed that Poly-GCL will start the natural gas pipeline project construction this year. Both countries hope to earn much needed foreign currency once the natural gas pipeline project is constructed and commissioned.

 

The Ethiopian government had back in April announced plans to generate $1 billion annually from extraction of gas & oil deposits. Poly-GCL is expected to install a pipeline to transport the gas from fields in landlocked Ethiopia up to ports in neighboring Djibouti in a period of 2 years.

 

Around 700 kilometers of the gas pipeline will be located in Ethiopia, while the rest of the gas pipeline will be located in Djibouti. Recently, Poly-GCL discovered 7 to 8 billion cubic trillion feet of gas in Ethiopia's Somali regional state located in the eastern part of the country.

 

Poly-GCL is a mixed ownership clean energy company engaged in exploration and development, storage and transportation and processing, trade marketing and terminal utilization.
