State-run GAIL (India) Ltd. (532155.BY) is exploring the possibility of investing in gas infrastructure projects in Nigeria, Ghana, Papua New Guinea and Egypt, its chairman said Monday.
"In Nigeria, we have been short-listed as one of the companies to develop the Nigeria gas master plan, worth about $7 billion," B.C. Tripathi told reporters on the sidelines of an industry conference.

Tripathi said in Papua New Guinea, the natural gas transmission company is examining the possibility of picking an equity stake in a new LNG terminal with InterOil Corp. (IOC).
