Mozambique to have fuel stations in all its districts by 2014

12 April 2010

Maputo, Mozambique, 12 April – All of Mozambique’s 128 districts will have fuel stations by 2014 as part of the “Incentivo Geográfico” (Geographic Incentive) project Macauhub has learned from a source at the Energy Ministry.

The government plans that from 2014 at least each district will have a fuel supply station that distributes diesel, gasoline and lighting oil.

For this year, the source said, 21 fuel stations will be built in 21 rural districts in 10 Mozambican provinces.

Of the 21 fuel stations, five will be built in Tete province, in the central northeast of the country. The same number will be built in the three provinces in the south of the country, specifically Maputo, Gaza and Inhambane.

In the three provinces in the north of the country (Cabo Delgado, Niassa and Nampula) four fuel stations will be built.

Zambézia province is the second biggest beneficiary in terms of numbers of fuel stations: Three.

The provinces of Manica and Sofala will each have two new stations.

Currently only 88 districts have fuel stations and most are located in urban and suburban areas.

Macauhub’s source did not give details of the investment to carry out this project.(macauhub)
