On behalf of the co-venturers in Mozambique’s Offshore Area 1 and after a front-end engineering and design (FEED) process, Anadarko president Al Walker said, “Selecting CCS JV for the development of the onshore Mozambique LNG park is a significant step toward reaching final investment decision (FID) and demonstrates our continued commitment to advancing this important project toward first cargoes.

“I am incredibly proud of our co-venture for all of the accomplishments achieved to date, including securing more than eight million tonnes per annum (MMTPA) in non-binding long-term off-take agreements, which are now progressing toward binding sales and purchase agreements (SPAs).”

The scope of the work for the onshore LNG park includes two LNG trains, each with capacity of six MMTPA, which is an increase of one MMTPA per train over the original plan, while maintaining an estimated cost that is consistent with the partners’ original projections.

The scope also includes two LNG storage tanks, each with capacity of 180,000 cu/m, condensate storage, multi-berth marine jetty and associated utilities and infrastructure. The selection of CCS JV is subject to negotiation and entry into a definitive agreement prior to taking FID.

Anadarko operates the Offshore Area 1 with a 26.5 per cent working interest. Partners include Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos E.P. (ENH) with 15 per cent interest, Mitsui E&P Mozambique Area1 with 20 per cent stake, ONGC Videsh with 16 per cent stake, Bharat PetroResources with 10 per cent holdings, PTT Exploration & Production Plc owning 8.5 per cent and Oil India Limited holding four per cent.
