The Republic of Mozambique Pipeline Investments Company (Rompco), a joint venture between Sasol, Companhia Mocambiçana de Gasoduto and South African Gas Development Company (iGas), plans to expand the 865km gas pipeline that transports gas from Mozambique to South Africa.
The US$210m expansion entails the installation of a pipeline parallel to the existing one from scraper station 1 (STS1), which is about 128km from the Central Processing Facility (CPF) at Temane, Mozambique, over a length of 127km where it connects back into the main pipeline at scraper station 2, Sasol said in a statement on Monday afternoon.
