IMOPETRO Launches Tender For Acquiring Fuel
Maputo, 9 Jan (AIM) – The Mozambican fuel importing agency, Imopetro, on Friday launched the first public tender of the year for the acquisition of liquid fuels.
Imopetro hopes to purchase 575,000 tonnes of refined fuels to meet the country’s needs for the next three months.
According to a report in Monday’s issue of the independent newssheet “Mediafax”, the breakdown of the Imopetro order is 400,000 tonnes of diesel, 150,000 tonnes of petrol, and 25,000 tonnes of jet fuel.
The amounts requested are not significantly different from those of the previous import, where the fuel was provided by Totsa, one of the branches of the French oil and gas group, TotalEnergies.
Totsa’s bid was preferred to those submitted by four other bidders. Totsa replaced the Independent Petroleum Group (IPG) of Kuwait as the supplier of fuel to Mozambique.
In its Friday note, Imopetro said that the tender will be governed by the standard procedures for international tenders, similar to those specified in the directives of the World Bank. The tender is open to bidders from all countries eligible under the World Bank directives.
