The Government of Senegal is actively developing Senegal’s first major domestic onshore gas pipeline to help reduce the cost of domestic energy and achieve energy independence. The Senegal backbone pipeline is a 144 km (90 miles) onshore pipeline, transporting gas from the Yakaar-Teranga gas processing plant, to be built by BP, to nine gas-power plants. In addition to the gas power plant, the pipeline serves large commercial and industrial operations near the pipeline route, including fertilizer, cement, steel and iron, and food processing. The estimated capital investment is ~200 million.
USTDA is funding the feasibility study for this project, including the pre-FEED (front end engineering and design), with a grant to Fonds Souverain d’Investissements Strategiques S.A. (FONSIS), the investment arm of the Government of Senegal. The study is being carried out by the U.S. firm, Advisian.
As a part of the USTDA-funded study, Advisian is carrying out a short webinar for prospective U.S. suppliers, which will take place on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at 10:00am CDT/11:00am EDT. For those companies expressing interest in supplying goods and/or services to support the implementation of the project, Advisian will arrange follow-on consultations with FONSIS and the key project sponsors.
For More Information: Additional details about the project will be provided during a webinar to be held Wednesday, 22nd September 2021 at 10:00am CDT/11:00 EDT. The webinar will be held on Microsoft Teams and qualified U.S. companies may register here.
