New fuel and bitumen terminals in Mozambique
Country’s strategic location key to the supply requirements of Southern Africa.
The new Puma Energy terminals are an example of how to build more, better and quicker, with precision and success, while contributing to the development of our country.

Second largest storage capacity in Africa
A year of heavy construction work, worldclass expertise and more than 25,000 tonnes of steel saw the inauguration in November 2015 of our new Bitumen and Fuel Terminals in Mozambique by the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Dr. Pedro Conceição Couto. This brought Puma Energy’s total capacity in the country to 276,500m³, currently our largest capacity in Africa. Both terminals are in Matola, one of Mozambique’s busiest ports and also home to its biggest industrial area, just 20 kilometres west of the capital, Maputo.
Catalyst for growth
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. Equally important, the new Bitumen Terminal means that Mozambique is no longer dependent on imports from neighbouring countries.
Cost-effective and secure fuel supply
Our significant investment in these terminals underlines Puma Energy’s confidence in the long-term commercial opportunities in Mozambique and, for us, the strategic importance of our new 115,000m³ Fuel Terminal reaches well beyond the country’s borders. Mozambique is bordered by the Indian Ocean to the east, Tanzania to the north, Malawi and Zambia to the northwest, Zimbabwe to the west and Swaziland and South Africa to the southwest. The new facility creates a channel for the costeffective and secure supply of fuel to the whole of the Southern African Development Community sub-region.
