Texas-based Anadarko and its partners are making progress on the remaining agreements and approvals that are required to support investment in the Mozambique LNG project.
“There has been substantial engagement with the new administration, including the President, Prime Minister and key ministers,” Anadarko said in its first-quarter report on Monday.
According to the report, the partners in the Mozambique project have continued the evaluation of onshore LNG contractor bids during the quarter in preparation for contractor selection later this year.
Anadarko and partners have discovered more than 75 Tcf of recoverable natural gas resources in Mozambique’s Offshore Area 1, which will be used to feed an initial two-train LNG development.
The plant will be located in the Afungi peninsula area of Cabo Delgado province. The area is large enough to accommodate expansions, including multiple additional trains capable of producing approximately 50 million tonnes of LNG per annum in future years, according to Anadarko.
The Mozambique LNG partners are Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos, Anadarko, Mitsui & Co, Bharat PetroResources, ONGC Videsh, Oil India, and PTT Exploration & Production.
