Perenco Moves on to Mayumba Gas to Power Project in Gabon

Perenco has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Gabon to commence the first phase (20MW) of a Gas to Power Project in Mayumba.

The Anglo- French player will be investing $50Million to collect, process and export offshore gas.

The 20MW power to be injected from the project into the Gabon south network will double the power available in this area (presently 10 MW generated from diesel).

The project is expected to electrify 90,000 homes in Mayumba and other cities, including Tchibanga, Bongolo, Mouila, Lambaréné.

Perenco officials told Africa Oil+Gas Report  that the Gas to Power facility is targeted at the development of south Gabon “where the network is saturated, with limited power generated at high costs”.

The company is also looking at the possibility of extending the network to the North or the East.

“Industries that will benefit from  this new power supply include the Tchibanga marble company and  some of Gabon’s iron ore mining companies”,  they explain. There is even the chance of a future Mayumba harbour being a beneficiary.

Construction works on the Mayumba Gas to Power Project is expected to start in 2nd Quarter of 2024, with a planned completion date set for 2025.
