Zimbabwe: Pilot Gas Production And Electricity Generation To Start In 2024

Shangani Energy Exploration (SEE), the company exploring coal bed methane in the Matabeleland North Province said it will start a pilot gas production for power generation in 2024.

SEE, a joint venture between Sinosteel of China and ZIMASCO intends to invest nearly US$800 million to develop gas wells and build a 400 megawatts (MW) power station. SEE said in a recent update on the project:

Results of the above works (phase one) will inform the second phase which is expected to be the sinking of new gas wells after successful application for production special grant status.

This will be the start of gas production for power generation as well as liquefaction to LNG (liquid natural gas) which can be a substitute for diesel in converted lorries and buses.

Pilot gas production and electricity generation on a small scale is planned for 2023/24 and this will encourage larger levels of investment. More work for phase three will be scoped in due course, again informed by results of the second phase.

Exploration work was restarted in July 2021, involving core drilling of one hole on each of the three special grants planned at various approximate depths between 450 and 1 000 metres.

Core drilling was completed in September 2021 at 690 metres at the first special grant and core samples were taken for evaluation of methane gas content through desorption tests.

SEE is in the process of finalising arrangements for wireline logging to be carried out in the hole completed at this first special grant.
