London-based energy company SDX said it had started producing gas in Morocco after receiving government approval.
The SDX well is located in the Gharb region, not far from Kenitra, where there is an industrial zone including automobile factories that need gas for their industrial activities.
Morocco considers gas as a transition energy to reduce its carbon footprint and strengthen the competitiveness of the industrial sector.
In addition to exploiting its existing gas potential, Morocco plans to strengthen its imports by setting up an LNG terminal in the port of Nador, which will then be connected to the Maghreb-Europe gas pipeline.
Until now, the country has depended on LNG imports through Spanish terminals which were pumped to Morocco thanks to a reversal of the flow of the Maghreb-Europe pipeline which once carried Algerian gas before Algerian authorities decided to stop exports unilaterally.
Morocco has an ambitious and diversified renewable energy plan which aims to increase the share of clean energy to 52% of the total electricity mix by 2030.
The country is also preparing its green hydrogen supply, exploiting the availability of renewable energies and the proximity of the European energy market.
