SMH is open to any cooperation initiative in the Midstream segment of the Oil & Gas value chain. In Mauritania, this segment offers many opportunities for monetizing natural gas, condensate and crude oil. A recent study identified about 20 opportunities for monetization of natural gas and oil, including as examples:

  • Bunkering of ships with LNG ;

  • PP/PE plastics;

  • Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) based applications;

  • Phosphate fertilizers ;

  • Explosives ;

  • Crude Oil Refining;

  • Methanol; and

  • Gas-to-Liquid (GTL). Etc...

The focus is now on the growth sector that will act as a catalyst for the industrialization of the country and the diversification of there through the introduction of new value chains with a considerable socio-economic impact.
