ENH: “Cooking Gas Production Could Start by the End of the Year”

Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos (ENH) expects the cooking gas processing unit in Inhassoro, Inhambane province, to start producing by the end of this year.

In the message from the chairman of ENH’s Board of Directors (chairmans), Estêvão Pale, which accompanies the 2023 report and accounts released by the company, the importance of implementing the Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) project in partnership with South African petrochemical company Sasol in the Inhassoro district of Inhambane province is emphasised.

“With satisfactory progress on the construction of the Temane Thermal Power Plant (CTT), with a capacity of 450 megawatts of electricity, and the 30,000 tonne per year cooking gas (LPG) processing plant in Inhassoro, we expect production to start by the end of 2024,” he said.

According to him, the PSA project also calls for the production of 53 million megajoules of natural gas per year, which will materialise the implementation of the Temane Thermal Power Plant and the production of 4,000 barrels of light oil per day.

The chairmans described that, “like the previous year, the 2023 financial year was characterised by the retraction of activities at projects in the Rovuma basin, in the north of Cabo Delgado province, due to the maintenance of ‘force majeure’, invoked in 2021 by TotalEnergies, in the face of terrorist attacks.”

ENH operates under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Energy (MIREME), and is dedicated to prospecting, research, development, production, transport, transmission and commercialisation of hydrocarbons and their derivatives, including import and export.
