Sasol group seeking contractors for projects in Mozambique

2 September 2015

South Africa’s Sasol group is seeking contractors in Mozambique to build a new pipeline to transport natural gas extracted in the country to South Africa, among other projects, indicate advertisements placed in the Mozambican press.

In the ads published in late August the group also states that it aims to contract companies to build facilities in Inhassoro, a coastal city 750 km north of the capital Maputo, to process oil extracted from wells in the region.

The Johannesburg-based group is waiting for the Mozambican government to approve the plans submitted last February, reports Bloomberg news agency.

This unit will have an installed capacity of 15,000 barrels of oil per day, and also handle gas and liquefied petroleum gas.

Sasol’s subsidiary in Mozambique, where it has been extracting natural gas since 2004, plans to build a 127 km long gas pipeline across Inhambane and Gaza provinces to reach the group’s installations on the other side of the border. (Macauhub/MZ)
