Mozambique begins development of Temane fuel and energy venture

Construction works on the 450MW Temane fuel and energy project in Mozambique has begun. The country’s President Filipe Nyusi ceremonially laid the primary stone to mark the start of the challenge.
The challenge situated in Inhassoro, Inhambane Province, entails development of Temane-Maputo power line, and an LPG plant. Supply for the power and LPG amenities will come from the PSA venture and includes an investment of US $760 million from Sasol.
The challenge upon completion will provide 30,000 tonnes per year of LPG, accounting for more than 70% of local demand and decreasing the need for imports. Gas will go to the 450 MW Temane power plant. The PSA may also produce 4,000 barrels per day of light oil. PSA will start producing in 2024. Power supplies are expected in 2025.
Potential clients

Sasol Petroleum Mozambique is the operator of the PSA. It covers three fields: Inhassoro, Pande and Temane. Work consists of growth wells and a processing facility. เกจวัดแรงดัน de Petróleo (INP) has reported the PSA discoveries have fuel in place volumes of around 2.5-3 trillion cubic ft, with recoverable volumes of 1-1.5 tcf. Sasol has also found 30-40 million barrels of liquids.
The Temane power plant will provide power to Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) under a 25-year contract. Sasol and Globeleq closed the financing for the venture in December 2021. EDM has been in discussions with numerous potential customers. These include Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA). EDM has raised the potential of rising energy exports to Zimbabwe from January 2025, when CTT begins up. The Mozambique firm has additionally discussed supplies from CTT to Eswatini and South Africa’s Eskom.
