Tendrara Export Pipeline
|This article is part of the Global Fossil Infrastructure Tracker, a project of Global Energy Monitor.|
Tendrara Export Pipeline is a proposed natural gas pipeline in Morocco, which would connect the Tendrara gas fields to the Maghreb-Europe Gas Pipeline.
The pipeline would run from the Tendrara gas fields, near Tendrara, Figuig province, Oriental region, to connect with the Maghreb-Europe Gas Pipeline near Ain Bni Mathar, Jerada province, in Oriental region, Morocco.
In January 2020, British firm Sound Energy received approval from Morocco's Ministry of Energy to build a 120-km, 20-inch gas pipeline to connect gas fields near Tendrara to the Maghreb-Europe Gas Pipeline (also known as the Gazoduc Maghreb Europe pipeline). The gas would be liquefied at a liquefaction station at Tendrara before being transported via pipeline.
In February 2020, Sound Energy received environmental approval from the Moroccan Ministry of Energy, Mines and Environment, and had at that point also successfully negotiated land access. At that time, a gas sale agreement was still being negotiated.
