A tender for domestic use of gas from the Rovuma Basin has produced three project awards, but bidders say timelines and gas sources have yet to be clarified. Fourteen bids were submitted in November for the tender, which was issued on 27 August (AE 339/16).The National Petroleum Institute (INP) told African Energy that successful bidders will now negotiate memoranda of understanding with the government which will set out more clearly the terms and structure of the projects, including whether national utility Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM), which bid unsuccessfully, will be involved as a shareholder.
