JFT, a consortium between JGC Corporation, Fluor, and TechnipFMC, has been awarded an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for work on the Rovuma LNG project.
LNG World News previously reported that the consortium won an EPC contract for work on the project, jointly led by ExxonMobil and Eni.
TechnipFMC confirmed on Wednesday that the Mozambique Rovuma Venture (MRV) awarded the JFT consortium with a contract for EPC work on the Rovuma LNG onshore liquefied natural gas production complex project in Cabo Delgado, Mozambique.
MRV, a joint venture composed of Eni, ExxonMobil, and CNPC, holds a 70 percent interest in the exploration and production concession of Area 4, with Galp, Kogas, and Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos (ENH) each holding a 10 percent interest.
The Rovuma LNG Project will produce, liquefy and market natural gas from three reservoirs of the Mamba complex located in the Area 4 block in the offshore Rovuma basin.
It includes the construction of two natural gas liquefaction trains, with a total LNG nameplate capacity of 15.2 mtpa, as well as associated onshore facilities.
Earlier this week, MRV inked a supplementary deal that follows the approval of the development plan for the Rovuma LNG project, while ExxonMobil lined up a $500 million investment for the initial construction phase of the project.
Nello Uccelletti, president of onshore and offshore at TechnipFMC, said: “We are extremely honored to have been awarded by MRV this new prestigious LNG project along with our long-time partners, JGC and Fluor. We are proud to serve our customer for the Rovuma project and will continue to accompany the industrial growth of the country, leveraging its resources and human capital.“
