Ministerial Site Visit - October 2020
Lesedi Project Site Visit – Honourable Minister Lefoko Moagi
Tlou Energy Limited was delighted to welcome Honourable Minister Lefoko Moagi, Minister of Mineral Resources Green Technology and Energy Security (MMGE) and his team to the Lesedi project. Honourable Minister Moagi has been a long-term supporter of Tlou’s project and again reiterated his support during his visit.
The visit started on Friday, 23 October 2020 in Palapye with a dinner which was also attended by the Chief from Moralane and Chief from Kodibeleng, two villages located close to the Lesedi project. The Chiefs discussed the relationship between Tlou Energy and the community and Tlou’s assistance with various programs, especially those to help create self-employment within the communities.
On Saturday morning the team visited the Botswana Power Corporation (BPC) substation in Serowe where they were met by BPC’s Customer Service Manager and Regional Engineer. The entourage included the Honourable Minister’s two Deputy Permanent Secretaries, the Chiefs from Moralane and Kodibeleng, Botswana TV (BTV) crew, two journalists from the guardian and patriot newspapers and support staff from MMGE. BPC personnel briefed the Minister about the substation and confirmed that there was capacity to take the proposed 10MW and much more from Tlou Energy.
The team then drove to Tlou’s Lesedi field camp where the Minister was received by Mr Remigiyo Mavata, Tlou’s Chief Geologist & Field Manager and his team. The MMGE team received a high-level presentation covering Tlou’s project to date. The team then traveled to the Lesedi 4 production pod and saw the flare from the gas being produced from the Lesedi 4P well.
The BTV television crew interviewed Honourable Minister Moagi and Tlou Executive Director Mr Gabaake at the Lesedi 4P site. The group also visited the location of the proposed Central Processing Facility where the Tlou team outlined the generation plan.
Thereafter the team returned to the Lesedi camp. Honourable Minister Moagi made a presentation thanking Tlou Energy for the hard work which he said was clearly evident and committed that he and his team would provide the support required for Tlou Energy’s project to succeed.
Tlou Energy Limited would like to sincerely thank Honourable Minister Moagi for taking the time to visit the Company’s operations and for the continued support received from the Ministry. The Company looks forward to successfully developing the project as soon as possible and repaying the faith shown by Honourable Minister Moagi and his team.
