Mozambique consortium awards FEED contract

A consortium of companies developing natural gas liquefaction to handle production off Mozambique has awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract to a joint venture of Fluor Corp., Irving, Tex., and Japan’s JGC Corp.

Anadarko Mocambique Area 1 Ltda. awarded the 50-50 joint venture FEED for a 20-million tonne/year (tpy) LNG plant in Cabo Delgado province, about 1,240 miles northeast of Mozambique’s capital, Maputo. The award will deliver designs for the initial phase of the Mozambique LNG plant of four 5-million tpy trains. The JV’s announcement said the project has the potential to expand capacity to about 50 million tpy.

For this first LNG project in Mozambique, the feedstock will come from offshore production in Offshore Area 1, operated by Anadarko Petroleum Corp., and Offshore Area 4, operated by Eni SPA. Plans target first LNG cargo for 2018.

Last month, Anadarko signed a heads of agreement with Eni for coordinating activities in the Mozambique LNG project (OGJ Online, Dec. 21, 2012).

Anadarko Mocambique Area 1 partners include Anadarko 36.5%, Mitsui E&P Mozambique Area 1 Ltd. 20%, Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos 15%, BPRL Ventures Mozambique BV 10%, Videocon Mozambique Rovuma 1 Ltd. 10%, and PTT Exploration & Production PLC 8.5%.
