Africa Oil & Gas: Morocco Plans Tender for LNG Terminal

The Ministry of Energy, Mines and Sustainable Development in Morocco is in the process of preparing to launch an international tender for the construction of a large LNG terminal in the port of Jorf Lasfar.

The $4.5 billion terminal will include an import platform with a capacity of 7 billion cubic meters by 2025, a jetty, a pipeline system, one or more thermal generating stations and possibly a regasification unit.

This is in line with an announcement made by the government in February 2017, that it would release $685 million of the $4.5 billion to be injected into the project. At the time, a public announcement had indicated that this investment will ensure the import of gas from Russia and Qatar, among others.
