French group Total plans to build a fuel terminal in Nacala, in Mozambique’s Nampula province, and the public presentation of the environmental impact took place a few days ago, according to Mozambican newspaper Notícias.
The project, to be built on a plot of three hectares, will require an investment of US$15 million, according to figures released at the public presentation of the study.
The terminal will be built in the area adjacent to other oil companies such as Puma Energy, Petromoc, African Petroleum and BP, and the fuel transferred from tankers to storage tanks via a pipeline of about 6 kilometres.
When in operation, the Total group’s terminal will increase the number of vessels docked and cargo handled and contribute to consequent growth of Nacala-Porto, which was declared a Special Economic Zone by the government. (macauhub/MZ)
