The Mozambique LNG, Anadarko-led project, held today in the city of Pemba, a seminar to present to local suppliers the contracting opportunities in the project. This is yet another initiative to maximize the participation of local content in the project and will be replicated later this month in the city of Maputo.
On the occasion, CCS JV, the consortium contracted for Engineering, Procurement and Construction under the Mozambique LNG project, presented in detail several contracting opportunities, including estimated contract values and timeframe, in areas of agriculture and livestock, administrative services, capital equipment, temporary works and facilities, communications, construction consumables, camp management, raw and manufactured building materials, personal protective equipment, specialised services and transportation.
In turn, IPEME presented, among others, its role as business opportunities promoter of the Mozambique LNG project and INNOQ its role in certification.
Dayne Kells, Anadarko Manager for Northern Industrialisation, said: “this workshop is part of the continued jointly work we are doing with the Mozambican Government and relevant partners to maximize the participation of local content in the Mozambique LNG project. Today our focus is on presenting an update on opportunities available in the Forward Work Plan”. He added: “We firmly believe that the development of local suppliers is strategic for Mozambique LNG Project, as this allow us to contribute to the sustainable development of Mozambique and at the same time bring benefits to our shareholders. Indeed, the local acquisition of goods and services is strategic for the project, since replacing high-cost imports can represent significant cost savings. It is also an important catalyst to facilitate job creation for Mozambicans and for the country’s economic growth”.
The Mozambique LNG project expects to invest about $ 2.5 billion with Mozambican-owned or registered companies in Mozambique over the five-year of the period of the construction of the plant.
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. The Golfinho/Atum Project will also supply initial volumes of approximately 100 million cubic feet of natural gas per day (MMCFD) for domestic use in Mozambique.
Anadarko Moçambique Área 1, Lda, 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 Area 1 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).).
