Procurement Seminar and Industry Briefing: Mozambique Oil and Gas Sector
Join the U.S. Commercial Service for a morning seminar highlighting oil and gas opportunities in Mozambique. The country presents a promising market for O&G equipment exports. Major discoveries of offshore natural gas in Mozambique have created a large potential for exporters of offshore equipment. Despite competition from third countries, and local labor quotas, U.S. companies should expect to find substantial opportunity for O&G equipment sales as development in Mozambique’s O&G sector begins to accelerate. The political situation in Mozambique is fluid and often contentious; however, political will exists to move forward with the development of large-scale offshore natural gas resources.
