The gas to power market is large in North Africa.
It is growing fast in Ghana and has shown encouraging uptick in Tanzania.
Nigeria is punching below its weight, running a distant third after Egypt and Algeria, even with much more abundant gas resources than either of them and more than double the population of each of these two countries.
