Texas-based Anadarko informed it has selected a consortium consisting of CB&I, Chiyoda and Saipem (CCS JV) for the initial development of the onshore LNG park in Mozambique.
Anadarko Chairman, President and CEO, Al Walker said the co-venture managed to secure “more than 8 million tonnes per annum in non-binding long-term off-take agreements, which are now progressing toward binding sales and purchase agreements. It is obtaining letters of intent from lenders for project financing at a very material level, and is working with the newly elected government to keep the project moving forward.”
The scope of the work for the onshore LNG park includes two LNG trains, each with capacity of 6 MMTPA, which is an increase of 1 MMTPA per train over the original plan, while maintaining an estimated cost that is consistent with the co-venturers’ original projections.
The scope also includes two LNG storage tanks, each with the capacity of 180,000 cubic meters, 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-percent working interest. Co-venturers include Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos (15 percent), Mitsui E&P Mozambique Area1 (20 percent), ONGC Videsh (16 percent), Bharat PetroResources (10 percent), PTT Exploration & Production (8.5 percent), and Oil India (4 percent).
