Oil terminals to be built in Tete and Palma, Mozambique

12 September 2013

Two oil terminals are due to be built in the city of Tete and the town of Palma, in Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado province, in order to supply fuel to large coal and natural gas projects, Mozambique’s Energy Minister announced.

At a meeting of the ministry’s Coordinating Council in the city of Gurué, Zambézia province, Minister Salvador Namburete said that construction of the two terminals would require active participation of national companies in the value and supply chains of Mozambique’s extractive industry.

Cited by Mozambican daily newspaper Notícias, the minister said that another 44 fuel stations had been built across the country, increasing the total to 340. (macauhub)
