Why Mozambique and South Africa?

Mozambique has seen tremendous growth in its hydrocarbon industry, where recent discoveries indicate a potential of 150 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of proven gas reserves. Significant opportunities exist for UK companies across the whole of the value chain from feasibility to EPC, where Mozambique has become an importer of UK expertise across multiple sectors.

South Africa is considered both a power house and an entry point into the continent for oil and gas, with prospective offshore oil and gas resources estimated at 21.75bn barrels (Bbbls) and 62.4Tcf. To support the expansion of power projects, there are several early stage upstream and midstream projects to ensure a continuous flow of oil and gas feed stock.
