Moz president to launch construction of LNG processing units
2 Aug 2019 - by Staff reporter
Exporting liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Mozambique is a step closer with construction work on the processing unit’s gas extraction in Rovuma Basin “Area 1 block”.
Mozambican president Filipe Nyusi said they’re expecting to start exporting LNG this Monday.
Presenting a report on the general state of the nation in parliament earlier this week, Nyusi said he would lay the foundation stone for the project on Monday.
The offshore LNG project is a joint venture between the United States-owned Anadarko Petroleum Corporation subsidiaries and the Mozambican government.
It includes two onshore liquefaction lines with an annual production capacity of 12 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas, as well as the construction of a domestic gas supply network.
Anadarko made its first discovery in the Offshore Area 1 of the deep-water Rovuma Basin in 2010, launching one of the most important natural gas discoveries in the last 20 years.
To date, the company and its partners have discovered approximately 75 trillion cubic feet of recoverable natural gas resources in Area 1.
