Beluluane Gas Company

Beluluane Gas Company SA (BGC) is a Mozambique registered company, which owns a concession for the import of LNG into the Matola harbour. The concession also gives BGC the right to construct all the required infrastructure in the Matola harbour to permanently moor a FSRU, receive LNG carriers for refilling the FSRU and the right to construct pipeline infrastructure to connect the FSRU with the Beluluane Industrial Park. In the Beluluane Industrial Park, the BGC pipeline will connect with a new 2 000MW gas fired power station being developed by Central Térmica de Beluluane (CTB) . BGC is also developing a Truck Loading Facility (TLF) near the FSRU berthing location, to fill trucks with LNG to transport to markets in Southern Africa, which are not connected to the pipeline network.
