Mozambique begins building of Temane fuel and energy project

Construction works on the 450MW Temane fuel and power project in Mozambique has begun. The country’s President Filipe Nyusi ceremonially laid the first stone to mark the start of the challenge.
The project located in Inhassoro, Inhambane Province, involves development of Temane-Maputo power line, and an LPG plant. Supply for the facility and LPG facilities will come from the PSA challenge and involves an funding 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 energy plant. The PSA will also produce four,000 barrels per day of sunshine oil. PSA will begin producing in 2024. Power supplies are expected in 2025.
Potential prospects
Sasol Petroleum Mozambique is the operator of the PSA. It covers three fields: Inhassoro, Pande and Temane. เกจอาร์กอน includes development wells and a processing facility. The Instituto Nacional de Petróleo (INP) has reported the PSA discoveries have fuel in place volumes of round 2.5-3 trillion cubic feet, with recoverable volumes of 1-1.5 tcf. Sasol has additionally discovered 30-40 million barrels of liquids.
The Temane power plant will supply energy to Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) beneath a 25-year contract. Sasol and Globeleq closed the financing for the venture in December 2021. EDM has been in discussions with a number of potential clients. These include Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA). EDM has raised the possibility of increasing 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.
