Oil and gas giant Total and clean energy project developer Gigajoule have signed a joint development agreement to import gas into Mozambique, in a move that could drive a large gas market in SA.

The project will see liquefied natural gas (LNG) delivered to a permanently moored floating storage and regasification unit in Matola harbour, adjacent to the capital Maputo.  The facility will be connected to a nearby gas-fired power plant and will feed gas into the existing SA gas network, through the infrastructure of the Matola Gas Company, in which Gigajoule is a major shareholder.
