Sasol Limited conduct pre-feasibility study for GTL plant in Mozambique

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA: Sasol Limited (Sasol) announced a joint pre-feasibility study for a large-scale gas-to-liquids (GTL) plant, which will be based on gas from the Rovuma Basin in Northern Mozambique. The study, which is being conducted in conjunction with Mozambique’s national oil company, Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos (ENH) and Italian multinational, Eni, will assess the viability and benefits of such a plant to the region.

The announcement comes as Sasol celebrates a decade of gas infrastructure development and value-add in Mozambique, which, in turn, has contributed to the country and the region’s economic growth and advancement. Sasol’s in-country experience, an extensive market distribution footprint in the region and proven GTL expertise, place the company in a strong position to develop the country’s first GTL facility, depending on the results of the study.

“The proposed GTL facility firmly aligns with Mozambique’s Gas Master Plan goals, and, if successful, will go some way to accelerate socio-economic development in the country and the broader region. Our GTL aspirations highlight our commitment to partnering with the Mozambican government and Eni in the responsible development of the country’s natural resources,” said David Constable, Chief Executive Officer, Sasol Limited.
