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.
