Three Firms Bid to set up Fourth Mobile Phone Company in Zambia
West African neighbours Senegal and Mauritania signed an agreement recently, pledging to work together and split production from a giant new cross-border gas field being developed by Kosmos Energy and BP.
The Greater Tortue Complex, which straddles the two countries’ maritime boundary, is estimated to hold more than 25 trillion cubic feet of gas. It is due to come online in 2021 with production to be exported via a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility.
Senegal’s President, Macky Sall signed the inter-governmental cooperation accord with his counterpart, Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, during a state visit to Mauritania.
