Shumba Energy, the local energy developer rapidly building a portfolio of projects in eastern Botswana, expects its recently announced Coal to Liquids (CTL) plant to produce 20,000 barrels of diesel and 5,000 of petrol per day when fully functional.

Shumba has partnered with PowerChina International Group and Wison Group on the project, which will be powered by a one billion tonne resource of coal located at Mabesekwa in the Central District.
