Gas was found in Pande and Temane in 1961 and 1967, respectively. In 2004, the South African Sasol bought the rights from Enron to explore gas in this region. The project includes a pipeline which runs from the gas fields in Inhambane to its Secunda plant in South Africa. SASOL attempted to register this project as a CDM but environmental organizations protested this decision on the basis that the company already planned to make this investment. The CDM was rejected. This year the company announced plans to build a plant to generate electricity from gas in Ressano Garcia, which lies on the border with South Africa.
