Sasol starts up Mozambique gas plant expansion

By OGJ editors

Sasol Petroleum International, the upstream subsidiary of Sasol Ltd., has started up its 63 million gigajoule/year (158 MMscfd) expansion at the Temane, Mozambique, gas processing plant. Capacity now is 458 MMscfd.

Sasol’s partners in the plant are Companhia Mocambicana de Hidrocarbonetos SA, representing the Mozambican government, and the International Finance Corp. of the World Bank, Washington, DC.

The gas plant began full-scale production of 300 MMcfd in 2004 and is connected to the South African market via a 865-km crossborder pipeline. From the added 158 MMcfd, the Mozambican market was allocated about 68 MMscfd to meet increased local demand, while another 68 MMscfd was allocated to the South African market. The remaining 22.5 MMscfd represents the royalty gas allocated to the Mozambican government.

With an investment of $220 million, the expansion came in under budget, the company said.
