South African energy and chemicals group Sasol has increased its natural gas, condensate, and crude oil production in Mozambique and Gabon, IOL reported. The company’s natural gas output from Mozambique grew from 11.3bscf to 16.4bscf thanks to efforts to de-bottleneck the production facility and increase gas transformation capacity to 169bscf, according to Club of Mozambique.
Sasol’s annual net production of crude oil from Gabon boosted by 14%, in comparison to 2015, mainly due to new wells from the Etame Expansion Project, South Etame, and North Tchibala coming on line.
In Mozambique, Sasol announced earlier this year its plans to drill 13 onshore exploration wells. The company will also build an integrated oil and liquefied petroleum gas facility and a gas processing train at the central facility for additional gas. Sasol has been producing natural gas at its central processing facility in Temane, Mozambique, since 2004.
