French company Bollore Africa Logistics has invested 11.7 million euros in acquiring and assembling a floating dock for logistical support of oil and gas surveying in Mozambique, a group official said Thursday in Maputo.
The Bollore Africa Logistics regional director for East and Southern Africa, Tony Stenning said that installing a floating dock at the port of Pemba in northern Mozambique as a logistics base for oil and gas operations in the Rovuma basin was intended to reduce drilling costs.
“On average oil companies, per day, spend US$1.5 million on drilling-related operations and it is important for costs not to overrun, and the floating dock is a solution designed with that in mind,” said Stenning.
The floating dock installed at the Pemba oil and gas terminal, Stenning said, was operating as a logistics platform for fours oil and gas prospecting ships operated by US group Anadarko Petroleum and Italy’s ENI. (macauhub/MZ)
