Europe buys oil from Libya since ages.
No problem there.

It's a bonus that Morocco and Algeria are in this project.
These Countries need a decent source of income.

Mauretania, Niger, Chad.

And why don't the Saudis add themselves to that grid?
The Chinese could tap into Taklamakan,
the US surely has some spare desert to make useful.
