The Government will invest this year in the construction of the first production unit for Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), better known as “cooking gas,” in order to maximize its use in the country.
This is an estimated investment of 1.3 billion meticais, to be implemented in Temane, Inhambane province.
The construction of the unit is part of the Economic and Social Plan and State Budget (PESOE) for this year, in which the Executive proposes to continue to prioritize the expansion and improvement of quality infrastructure that will serve to leverage productive activity in various sectors.
With the development of gas projects in Mozambique, the Government has been maximizing the gains from hydrocarbon exploration, ensuring that more citizens can benefit from these resources and in an increasingly significant way.
According to the PESOE, approved in December last year by Parliament, the unit will have the capacity to produce 30,000 tons of LPG per year.
