Mozambique prepares to launch gas tenders
 
Maputo, 23 May (AIM) – The Mozambican government is preparing for the launch of tenders for gas exploration licences later this year.

According to the Chairperson of the Board of Mozambique’s National Petroleum Institute (INP), Arsenio Mabote, work is currently underway to improve geological data through seismic and aeromagnetic surveys. This data will be made available to companies bidding for licences.

Speaking in Maputo on Wednesday at a seminar entitled “Challenges in the Energy Industry”, Mabote stressed that the surveys will not be confined to offshore areas.

He stated that “every day companies knock on our door asking for us to launch new tenders”. However, he pointed out that, in parallel with the geological surveys, the country’s hydrocarbons legislation is currently being reviewed.

Mabote noted that the Mozambican coast is still virtually virgin territory as the 170 trillion cubic feet of natural gas already discovered was found within a radius of about fifty kilometres.

He added that “we have many mineral resources, but it would be even better if we could find liquid hydrocarbons”.

The need for the local processing of minerals was one of the themes covered in the first day of the seminar.

According to Mabote, the policy of the Mozambican government is to create the conditions for resources such as gas to be used by national industry.
