We started operating in Mozambique in 2010, with the opening of the Petrobeira terminal and have continued to invest in midstream operations in Mozambique since then. In 2014, we opened our bitumen terminal in Matola, with a total capacity of 21k m3. In 2015, our new 115,000m3 Fuel Terminal in Matola was inaugurated by the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Dr. Pedro Conceição Couto. This brought Puma Energy’s total capacity in the country to 276,700m³, currently our largest capacity in Africa.
Historically, Mozambique has had a limited capacity to store fuel, so the construction of the new Fuel Terminal will help to ensure availability, including in times of crisis, and act as a catalyst for maintaining the country’s impressive economic growth of recent years. In addition, the terminal is to act as a storage hub for the Group's Southern African operations, expanding its strategic importance beyond the country’s borders.
Equally important, the new Bitumen Terminal means that Mozambique is no longer dependent on imports from neighbouring countries.

Mozambique’s natural beauty and wildlife can be enjoyed at its many national parks. But nothing beats wasting the day away along the stunning beaches of Toffo and Barra de Toffo. And when we’re feeling hungry we love to eat matapa with prawns and nipa, washed down with the cashew fruit brew.
