MOZAMBIQUE

(in East Africa)

CAPITAL: MAPUTO

POPULATION: 20 mm

AREA (on): 801,600 km2

OIL PEAK: na

SUPPLY

Dry gas fields discovered in the centre of the country within sediments of the Zambezi delta have produced since 1998. Development of the Temane field in 2004, from which gas is mostly exported to South Africa, is leading to considerable changes in the industry. As further development of the Pande gas field also proceeds, output is expected to grow to a plateau around 2020.

Due to surplus onshore gas no offshore production is forecast for many years and Mozambique would seem to have no oil potential.

 

DEMAND

Oil consumption, all of which is imported, has been rising slowly since 1998 but is now flat, unlikely to grow even as economic growth is driven by the start of gas exports.

Gas consumption is growing rapidly as new gas sources come onstream and exports, all to South Africa, are increasing rapidly.
