As the conflict in Tigray continues to destabilise Northern Ethiopia, many fear the region could be pushed deeper into famine, after an airstrike ... on the capital of Mekelle today has threatened the lives of more innocent civilians, injuring dozens and killing three in two airstrikes today, according to reports from the BBC.
Mozambique is sitting on huge gas reserves and developing liquefied natural gas export projects is expected to bring tens of billions of dollars to the impoverished state.
The petrochemicals giant, which makes 40 percent of its revenue from oil, said the project, about 600 km (372 miles) north of the capital Maputo, will be rolled out in stages.
The first phase will include an oil, liquefied petroleum gas and gas project adjacent to its Pande and Temane fields.
Natural gas from Pande and Temane fields, in which Sasol holds a majority stake, is currently produced and processed at a central facility before being transported on an 865 km pipeline to gas markets in Mozambique and South Africa.
Sasol President and Chief Executive David Constable said the project was a “major milestone in further developing natural resources, which will significantly benefit Southern Africa.”
Gas projects being developed by Italy’s Eni and U.S. energy firm Anadarko will be given the final go-ahead by the end of this year, the state-run National Hydrocarbon Company (ENH) said on Sunday.
