South Africa’s PetroSA Targets Mozambique Gas in New Sales Deal

South Africa’s PetroSA expects the commencement of gas imports from Mozambique’s ENH later this year, aiming to mitigate potential supply shortages.

Having secured a gas trading license in March, PetroSA swiftly finalized a deal for an initial annual supply of 2 petajoules (PJ) of gas, with plans for expansion up to 200 PJ in the future.

This supply is crucial for various industrial users, including major steelmaker ArcelorMittal, as South African firm Sasol, their primary supplier, plans significant restrictions due to depleting Mozambican gas fields.
