Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos (ENH) chariman Omar Mithá says that instability in parts of Cabo Delgado is not affecting the ongoing construction of the Afunge [also spelt Afungi] resettlement village in Palma, emphasising that communications by road between Mocímboa da Praia and Palma and all points between was normal.
No communication from any of the companies involved in hydrocarbons in the Rovuma Basin in Cabo Delgado expressing their interest in abandoning the project or withdrawing their personnel, he said.
Some of the news circulating in the media about the situation in Palma and Mocímboa da Praia was not true, he added.
Meanwhile, Mitha, Miranar reports that ENH has not yet received any alarm signals on the gas platforms in Cabo Delgado, a province that has been subjected to military attacks by hitherto unidentified groups.
The commercial arm of the State in the Oil and Gas sector, is worried about the instability in the province of Cabo Delgado, due to the armed attacks perpetrated by unknown groups.
Meanwhile, ENH’s PCA, Omar Mithá, says that the Afunge, Palma and Mocímboa da Praia regions remain safe.
For Mithá, the attacks that have happened in Cabo Delgado may aim to create a risk on the ongoing investment in the country, aiming to hamper national development.
Regarding the recommendations made by the US Embassy to the American citizens to leave immediately the district of Palma, Mithá said that he has not yet been notified about this situation.
Mithá was speaking in Maputo on Monday where he was attending the signing of a memorandum with Eduardo Mondlane University launching undergraduate and post-graduate courses in Petroleum Engineering.Source: Rádio Moçambique / Miramar
