Mozambique

60 years of history in the country

In Mozambique, we lead important projects for the future of worldwide natural gas production, we have a distribution network of 66 service stations and we have a strong presence in the Lubricants and LPG market. We have also developed several social impact projects for local communities.

Upstream

Galp has been present in Mozambique in the Upstream business since 2007

Through the farm-in with Eni and the Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos (ENH) for the exploration of Area 4, located in the Rovuma basin.

The approximately 85 tcf of gas initially in place identified in Area 4 of the Rovuma basin place it as one of the world’s most relevant regions for the future natural gas production.

Mozambique is growing in the oil and gas industry and is expected to become the third largest producer in Sub-Saharan Africa by the middle of the next decade. The size and quality of the resources discovered will be transformational for the country and will also play a fundamental role in Galp’s production profile, contributing to a lower carbon portfolio mix, aligned with the Company’s strategic commitment to a smooth energy transition.

Commercial

We are the largest distributor of LPG in the country

Since 1957, Galp has been distributing its petroleum products in Mozambique. With a retail network covering all country’s provinces, Galp sells and distributes lubricants and liquid fuels, filling, storing, distributing and marketing LPG in retail and wholesale segments.

Galp has been consolidating its presence in the country, being currently a reference player in the distribution of products, assuming a notable leadership in the LPG market.

Investment in logistics parks with strategic locations

The improvement of Mozambican logistics facilities is fundamental to support Galp’s regional activities. One of the most relevant projects are the construction of two new logistical bases for the reception, storage and shipment of liquid fuels and LPG in Beira and Matola, Mozambique.

These projects doubled the existing storage capacity in the southern part of the country, thus helping to reduce supply costs while ensuring greater availability of gas to households, indispensable to meet the growing demand. In addition, Galp will be able to extend its area of influence in this region of Africa, expanding its activities to neighbouring countries.

The Matola park started operations in 2020 and the Beira park started operations during the beginning of 2021.

Community Investment

In line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, The Galp Foundation actively promotes various social projects with an impact on the Mozambican community, with a particular focus in the areas of education and energy transition.

In Mozambique, it has the mission of promoting universal access to sustainable energy sources and promoting energy development initiatives, such as the Energiza project.

Sponsorships

Galp signs partnership protocol with the National Football Team of Mozambique

Galp signed a partnership protocol with the National Football Team of Mozambique in 2019. Being the historical sponsor of the Portuguese National Football Team for two decades, the company’s long history of sports partnerships was reinforced across seas, enhancing the firm’s brand strategy.

“Galp is part of the Mozambican society, vibrating with its successes and wants to contribute so that those are pursued and achieved in an increasingly structured and consistent manner. It is like this in the field of economic development, but also in the social field, where sport has an incomparable mobilization capacity ” affirmed CEO Galp Mozambique, Paulo Varela.
