Anadarko expects several deals this year for its Mozambique LNG
SINGAPORE, (Reuters) - Anadarko Petroleum expects to conclude several sales and purchase agreements (SPA) by year-end for liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its new plant in Mozambique, a company official said.
Texas-based Anadarko is developing the first onshore LNG plant in the African nation, consisting of two initial LNG trains with a total capacity of 12.88 million tonnes per annum.
"We have multiple ongoing negotiations with a variety of buyers ... everyone from Chinese to Indians to Japanese," said Andrew Seck, vice president of Anadarko's LNG Marketing and Shipping division.
In all, Anadarko has agreed on commercial terms including volume and price for 5.1 MMtpy of LNG off-take deals from Mozambique, closing in on the 8.5 MMtpy target needed to trigger its final investment decision (FID) on the project, Seck said on the sidelines of an LNG conference in Singapore.
Deals so far include Anadarko's first binding SPA with France's Electricite de France, as well as an earlier SPA with Thailand's state-run PTT that is still undergoing government approvals. There is also a preliminary deal with Japanese utility Tohoku Electric.

Power, LNG projects drive pipeline construction in Africa
Increasing public investment in gas-fired power plants in Africa, the continuing recovery in global oil prices and persistent insecurity in key producer markets, such as Nigeria, are likely to impact gas transmission pipeline projects on the continent, even as more international companies express interest in the region’s stranded gas resources.
Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
