Africa: LNG Development Plan Anadarko Receives Approval for Mozambique LNG Project
Claimed to be Mozambique’s first onshore LNG development, the project is expected to supply initial volumes of approximately 100 million cubic feet of natural gas per day.
Texas/USA – Anadarko Petroleum Corporation has recently announced that it has received official approval from the Government of Mozambique for the Golfinho/Atum Field Development Plan. The Development Plan outlines the integrated onshore project from the reservoir to the LNG market and is a culmination of the substantial progress made to date on the technical and commercial aspects of the Anadarko-operated Mozambique LNG development.
The Mozambique LNG project will be Mozambique’s first onshore LNG development, initially consisting of two LNG trains with total nameplate capacity of 12.88 MTPA to support the development of the Golfinho/Atum fields located entirely within Offshore Area 1. This foundational project paves the way for significant future expansion of up to 50 MTPA from Offshore Area 1. The Golfinho/Atum project will also supply initial volumes of approximately 100 million cubic feet of natural gas per day for domestic use in Mozambique.
Anadarko Moçambique Área 1, Lda, a wholly owned subsidiary of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, operates Offshore Area 1 with a 26.5 % working interest. Co-venturers include ENH Rovuma Área Um (15 %), Mitsui E&P Mozambique Area1 (20 %), ONGC Videsh (10 %), Beas Rovuma Energy Mozambique (10 %), BPRL Ventures Mozambique BV (10 %), and PTTEP Mozambique Area 1 (8.5 %).
