Sasol’s field development plan (FDP) for the Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) licence in the Inhambane province, Mozambique, reached an important milestone with the commencement of the drilling of the first well.
Adjacent to its current producing Petroleum Production Agreement licence, the PSA development is an integrated oil, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and gas project.
The spud marks the beginning of the drilling campaign, which is part of the first phase of the FDP, the delineation and initial development of the Temane G8, Temane East, Inhassoro G6 and Inhassoro G10 reservoirs.
A total of 13 production wells will be drilled (including a water disposal well) during this initial phase, while oil and LPG production facilities will be installed close to the existing Central Processing Facility (CPF). A fifth gas-processing train will be installed at the CPF to process the additional gas.
