Lusa - Business News - Mozambique: Country has added responsibilities in driving energy transition - minister




Maputo, Aug.4,2022(Lusa) - Mozambique's minister of mineral resources and energy said on Thursday that the African country has increased responsibilities in driving the energy transition, because this year it will start producing liquefied natural gas in the Rovuma basin, in the north of the country.
"This year should be marked, among other events, by the start, for the first time in Mozambique, of the production and export of liquefied natural gas, through the Coral Sul FLNG Project, as well as the closing of the sixth tender for new areas of hydrocarbon research, which adds a greater sense of responsibility and necessary reflection on the much sought-after energy transition," Carlos Zacarias said.
The minister was speaking at the opening of the seventh coordinating council of the ministry of mineral resources and energy, which is being held in Gaza province, southern Mozambique.
Thanks to its immense potential in natural gas, he said, Mozambique is positioned as a major player in the reduction of polluting fuels and growing adoption of clean sources.
As well as contributing to the energy transition, Mozambique wants its natural resources to also be used for the country's social and economic development, he added.
"With regard to hydrocarbons, these are seen as an indispensable vector for the future of the country. It is therefore in this light that, at the end of these two days of reflection [of the coordinating council], we should have a more refined strategic vision," Carlos Zacarias emphasised.
Another challenge facing the mineral resources and energy sector is the organisation of artisanal mining, with a view to putting this asset at the service of social and economic development in the face of illegal mining and smuggling, he noted.
In that sense, he said, artisanal mining operators should organise themselves into cooperatives in order to make it easier to control the activity.
Zacarias said that in the field of energy, Mozambique was committed to "ensuring universal access to energy for all by 2030, through the electrification of district administrative posts throughout the country, using the national grid and standalone systems.
This goal, he continued, will also be achieved by increasing electricity production capacity, development of new transmission and distribution projects.
The minister noted that, with its potential, Mozambique has the capacity to achieve self-sufficiency and increase supply in the region.
