Sasol Pipeline and FSO Project

Sasol Petroleum Mozambique Limitada (Sasol) has obtained approval from the Mozambique Council of Ministers for the Production Sharing Agreement’s (PSA) Field Development Plan (FDP) that will see further hydrocarbon resources developed to support the economic growth of Mozambique.

At present, the Central Processing Facility (CPF) in Temane is supplied by 24 onshore production wells, 12 in the Temane Field and 12 in the Pande Field. Production at the CPF is currently around 197 Gigajoules of gas per annum and 250 m3per day of condensate of condensate (a low-density mixture of hydrocarbon liquids that are present as gaseous components).

Sasol is committed to the phased evaluation and development of additional oil and gas resources within its concession areas.

In 2014, detailed technical and environmental work on the PSA Development and Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG)Project was started, which involves the expansion of the CPF and the development of a new Liquids Processing Facility (LPF) adjacent to the CPF, in order to process additional PSA gas, condensate and light oil.

The proposed PSA Development and LPG Project will include a facility to produce LPG to replace much of the LPG currently imported at significant cost to Mozambique.

Due to uncertainty about the quantity of light oil that will be produced, Sasol wishes to license two transport options in order to provide flexibility in later planning once liquid volumes are confirmed:

1) Road transport; and
2) Pipeline / offshore storage.

Road transport will be undertaken if the volumes are relatively low. The second transport option suited to larger volumes is to pump the light oil via an onshore and offshore pipeline to an offshore Floating, Storage and Offloading unit (FSO), where it can be collected by shuttle tankers. It is also possible that road transportation would be preferred initially, followed by the pipeline / offshore storage option as volumes start to increase.

Information regarding the latter option, known as the Sasol Pipeline and FSO Project for the exportation of stabilised light oil, is provided here.
