The French oil and gas giant Total, has just announced the reduction of its staff on the site of the Mozambique LNG natural gas liquefaction plant (7,000 hectares delimited by Mozambique to accommodate staff and certain equipment). An operation aimed at reducing the risks at the site in the event of an attack by ISIS fighters who, after several weeks of fighting, are only 5 km from the gas installation. No figures have been released on this reduction in Total’s workforce, estimated in December at 3,000 workers at the site. The company is currently working to relocate around 100 people in the capital Maputo and several airlines have been mobilised to evacuate all the expatriate workers.
