Background

The Matola Gas Company Pipeline is a 100 km natural gas pipeline in southern Mozambique. Construction of the main pipeline began in June 2004 and was completed in March 2005.[2] Gas for the pipeline comes from the Pande and Temane gas fields via the Mozambique-South Africa Gas Pipeline. Customers supplied by the pipeline include several industrial users in Machava and Matola, northwestern suburbs of Mozambique's capital city, Maputo.[1] Since September 2014, the pipeline has also supplied households and businesses in Maputo and Marracuene.[3]
