Start-up of natural gas power generation at Moundou Power Station, providing cleaner energy to Chad’s second city
PetroChad Mangara (PCM), Perenco’s wholly owned Chad subsidiary, is proud to announce the start-up of natural gas generated power at the Moundou Power Station in Chad.
Seven months after Perenco entered Chad as operator of the Badila and Mangara fields in the Doba Basin in southern Chad, PCM is now successfully generating electricity from natural gas for Chad’s second city, which previoulsy had limited electricity generation and relied on diesel fuel generators.
Today’s important social development for the city of Moundou is a direct result of the successful increasing of production from the Badila and Mangara fields towards their combined potential of approximately 16,000 bopd.
PCM worked closely with Perenco’s technical department to deliver this result, as well as in close coordination with Société des Hydrocarbures du Tchad (SHT) and Chad’s Minister of Hydrocarbons. In addition to its role in helping provide Moundou with electricity, PCM has also been involved in the repair of a number of water wells close to its operations.
