Total’s Force Majeure declaration on Mozambique LNG is a call for dialogue and a global firewall against terrorism

Force majeure is recognized under the Mozambique Petroleum Law, which provides that “petroleum operations rights holders may lawfully suspend performance of petroleum operations on account of a force majeure event”

We are disappointed about Total’s recent decision to declare force majeure on its Mozambique LNG Project. While the African Energy Chamber (“AEC”) (www.EnergyChamber.org) stands in solidarity with Mozambique and Total all energy investors, we believe the declaration of force majeure could have been prevented and comes prematurely. We encourage all…

Greenpeace believes that Uganda and Tanzania ought to turn down this foreign direct investment (FDI)

By NJ Ayuk, Chairman of the African Energy Chamber (www.EnergyChamber.org) If someone were to put me on the spot and ask me to name an environmentalist group, I’d probably blurt out the first thing that comes to mind, Greenpeace. There are obvious reasons for this: Greenpeace has been around for…
