The project is a crucial component of Nigeria 's Gas Master Plan, the NGMC, which seeks to use the vast amount of gas generated in Nigeria, thereby minimizing gas flare and making gas readily accessible to a wider part of the world.

The gas pipe project has a capacity to transport up to 2.2 trillion cubic feed of gas per day, as approved by the Federal Executive Council, and is expected to be completed in a span of 24 months. Given this enormous amount of gas available for transport, the latter will enable better power generation in the national grid than is currently 3,600 megawatts of electricity and would also provide job opportunities for many Nigerians.
