Three Fuel Fields Constructed in Zouerat, Tidjikja, and Ouassa Airfields

NOUAKCHOTT, Mauritania – The Mauritanian Air Force, in partnership with the US Embassy through the Office of Security Cooperation, took possession of three fuel fields at Zouerat, Tidjikja, and Ouassa Airfields in February.

The construction of the fuel fields is intended to upgrade the support infrastructure of the Mauritanian Air Force and improve air operations throughout the country. The new fuel fields included the installation of fueling tank systems and aircraft fueling aprons that will help improve logistical support for the Mauritanian Air Force during security operations.

This project is part of a security partnership between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Mauritanian whose shared goals include providing peace and security in Mauritania and throughout the region.
