Ethiopia and Djibouti to build gas pipeline to the Red Sea

Africa Business Chief

Ethiopia has signed a deal to develop a gas pipeline travelling between the nation and the Red Sea with Djibouti.

The pipeline will transport gas originally found in the country during the 1970s to an export terminal, Reuters reported.

In 2013, the Chinese energy firm POLY-GCL Petroleum Investments has developed the Calub and Hilala fields in Ethiopia’s eastern Ogaden Basin.

Over a year ago, the company signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Djibouti to built a natural gas pipeline.
