Edited transcript

David’s Introduction: My guest is from the West Africa Gas Pipeline Company Limited (WAPCo). As you know, this project began in the 1980s; I recall doing interviews many years ago as a journalist on this fantastic project that was going to provide cheap gas from Nigeria to a number of countries along the West African coast, including Ghana. Gas that was being flared in Nigeria was going to be harnessed to become a source of energy for all of us. This project has taken a long time in coming; it’s late in many respects, it’s over budget; and one wonders whether it is still relevant. We’ll be speaking to the Managing Director of the Company, Jack Derickson, to get a feel of what in his view are the benefits of the project now that it is here.
