South African energy producer Sasol almost doubled sales of natural gas from its Mozambican Pande and Temane fields in the nine months to March to 12.4bscf from 7.1bscf in the same period last year, as it began supplying the Central Termica de Ressano Garcia (CTRG) gas to power plant from January, Interfax reported.

The group also grew sales of crude oil from its Gabon interests significantly, to 1.337m barrels from 875,000 barrels, as new wells came on line from the Etame Expansion Project and South East Etame and North Tchibala, BDLive reported.

However, the group’s third quarter production and sales report showed other areas of its business were more subdued. For instance, total sales of liquid fuels (white product) was 44.4m barrels, close to last year’s 44.3m  barrels, with an additional 1.8m  barrels of black product, unchanged from last year.
