Sasol, Eni consider new Mozambique gas-to-liquids plant

|About: Sasol Limited (SSL)|By:, SA News Editor

Sasol (SSL) says it is teaming with Eni (E) and Mozambique's state-run energy company to study the viability of building a gas-to-liquids plant in the African country.

The plant would service the gas fields off Mozambique's northern coast in the deepwater Rovuma Basin being developed by Eni and Anadarko Petroleum (APC) which could contain 35T-65T cu. ft. of recoverable natural gas.

If SSL goes ahead with the plant, it will be the first gas-to-liquids facility in the country; gas production would not begin until at least 2018, and SSL does not say how much such a plant would cost.
