Morocco has received expression of interest (EOI) documents from 93 companies for its estimated $4.6bn gas to power project at Jorf Lasfar.
Meed reports that according to Morocco‘s Office National de l’Electricite et de l’Eau Potable (ONEE), expressions of interest (EOI) were received from 93 companies from 20 countries.
The Jorf Lasfar scheme was launched in December 2014 and is located 118 kilometres from Casablanca. The project will include 2,400MW combined-cycle gas-fired power plants, which will use gas received from an LNG importing terminal along with associated pipelines and jetty.
Morocco is the biggest energy importer in North Africa and has benefited financially from the drop in global energy prices over the past two years.
