With funding from the World Bank, the Ministry of Petroleum of Mauritania has contracted with a Consortium of international companies (including one Mauritanian) for the study of a service area dedicated to hydrocarbons activities.
The joint venture EPCM Holdings/Jade Advisory/Meen & Meen has won this strategic contract after an international consultation in which more than 10 global firms participated.
The objective will be to provide Mauritania with a world-class Logistics, Maritime and Industrial Hub to support the development of oil and gas projects. Such a special zone will be inspired by the special zones of Saldanha Bay in South Africa and Ras Laffan in Qatar.
This study is part of many previous studies conducted by the Ministry of Petroleum aimed at implementing a strategic and holistic vision for the development of the Mauritanian oil and gas sector, such as the Gas Master Plan, the Local Content strategy, the Hydrogen industry Roadmap, and the Strategic Environmental and Social Assessment (SESA) of the hydrocarbon sector, to name but a few.
Kapital Afrik intends to deliver strategic financial information to executives and managers, through a daily newsletter and a website that covers all African finance.
