Anadarko announces approval of Mozambique LNG development plan

HOUSTON, PRNewswire -- Anadarko Petroleum Corporation announced 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.

"We appreciate the support of the Government of Mozambique and are very pleased to achieve this critical milestone providing a further indication of the tremendous progress we continue to make on the project, which will position Mozambique as a strategic global LNG supplier," said Mitch Ingram, Anadarko Executive Vice President, International & Deepwater Operations and Project Management.

"The approval of the Development Plan continues advancement toward a Final Investment Decision as it builds upon other recent achievements, including the announcement of our long-term SPA (Sale and Purchase Agreement) with EDF, commencement of resettlement, and our ongoing work to secure project financing."

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 (MMcfd) (50 MMcfd per train) 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-percent working interest. Co-venturers include ENH Rovuma Área Um, S.A. (15 percent), Mitsui E&P Mozambique Area1 Ltd. (20 percent), ONGC Videsh Ltd. (10 percent), Beas Rovuma Energy Mozambique Limited (10 percent), BPRL Ventures Mozambique B.V. (10 percent), and PTTEP Mozambique Area 1 Limited (8.5 percent).

The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.

During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
