The Mozambique branch of the French oil and gas company, Total Energies, has returned to the jihadist-hit Cabo Delgado province.
It has opened an information office in the city of Pemba, nine months after suspending its activities over concerns about insecurity in the region – after a militant attack in the nearby town of Palma in March in which dozens of people were killed.
The information office launched on Saturday is meant to ease communication between interested parties in the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) exploration project in the Rovuma basin
Laila Chilemba, a Total Energies official, said it would resolve the complex problem of interconnection and communication between critical actors in the project.
The local governor has welcomed the move by Total Energies
