Louis Coetzee, CEO of Kibo, said: “Working in Mozambique has been notably straightforward as evidenced by the timely advancement of Benga which is currently advancing well ahead of the Company’s development schedule for the project.
The project is gaining increasing recognition as a notable energy project in Mozambique and the support and feedback we have received on the Project so far is highly encouraging. We look forward to updating the market further on our progress including negotiations on the PPA.”
