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.

In the business of hydrocarbon production, accurate accounting of produced fluids and gases is critical from a process control, management and fiscal perspective.
The US East Coast will send out its first LNG exports in early 2018 as Dominion Energy’s Cove Point LNG export facility in Lusby, Maryland becomes operational.
The New LNG Imperative
The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction.
