Samson: An African country supplies the European continent with gas for the first time in its history
13th November, 2022
Mozambique started exporting liquefied natural gas for the first time, and the first shipments in the country’s history went to energy-hungry Europe, in a move described by the country’s President Felipe Nyusi as historic.
In a video recording, Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi announced Sunday, that his country has officially started exporting liquefied natural gas produced in the north, explaining that his country is entering the “records of world history” with the departure of the first shipment of gas produced at the Coral Sol marine terminal operated by Eni. Italian, territorial waters.
He added, “I am honored to announce the start of the first exports of liquefied natural gas,” noting that the cargo ship “British Spencer” is leaving the waters of Mozambique for the international market, adding that his country “today enters the records of world history as one of the countries exporting liquefied natural gas.”
Gas prices on the European continent are now nearly 10 times higher than their average level over the past decade.
In February 2021, gas was trading in Britain at 38 pence per therm. But last August, its price reached 537 pence.
Mozambique hopes to become one of the world’s largest natural gas exporters, after discovering gas reserves in the northern province of Cabo Delgado in 2010. But efforts to invest in gas were halted due to the rebellion of extremist Islamic organizations, which began about five years ago and is still ongoing, and has resulted in the deaths of more than 4,000 people, and the displacement of hundreds of thousands in the region.
The government believes that the gas discovery will boost the economy, but President Nyusi said Mozambique will continue to focus on “traditional activities” such as agriculture, fishing and tourism to achieve the needed development. The conflict has killed more than 4,100 people over the past five years, according to ACLED, a conflict-tracking organization.
European countries have begun to search for unconventional ways to confront the high energy prices in the world, after Russia reduced the supply of natural gas through pipelines, so dealing with wasted energy has become a priority for European governments.
Steps have also been taken to reduce heating and air conditioning, and the European Union has drawn up a plan to reduce gas consumption by 15 percent this winter, and to ensure that its stores of natural gas are 80 percent full by November 1.
Some countries have resorted to turning off the lights, and Germany said that public buildings and monuments will no longer be lit at night, while in Spain, lights must be turned off in shop windows after 10 pm. France believes that such measures can reduce energy consumption by 10 percent. LINK
Jeanette: DID ANYONE LOOK ON A MAP WHERE ZIMBABWE IS COMPARED TO MOZAMBIQUE? They have adjoining boarders. So, if Mozambique is selling liquid natural gas to Europe, will that affect the value of the Zimm currency? Love to hear others thoughts
PattyCakes77: Mozambique is located on the southeast coast of Africa and Zimbabwe to the west. It would be quite intersting to know if the Zimm currency will be affected in a positive way by Mozambique supplying natural gas to the European continent. I do not know but my ears are itching. I have all my currencies in line and I am watching and patiently waiting on which one will go out the gate first.
