Mozambique: Exxon awards contract for Africa’s biggest-ever private project
Anadarko this week held a two days business development workshop with about 50 companies, in Pemba, designed to increase the capacity and competitiveness of local suppliers looking to access opportunities offered by the Mozambique LNG Project. Similar event will be held in Maputo later this month.
Benjamin Cavel, Local Content Manager at Anadarko, said the workshops are designed to provide additional support in areas likely to be less familiar to local companies.
“The Project’s requirements in terms of health and safety, legal compliance and procurement are very specific. We want to make sure local SMEs are aware of the requirements and what they mean for them.”
He added: “We believe that the development of local suppliers is strategic, as this allows 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 Anadarko, 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”.
Anadarko expects to invest about $ 2.5 billion with Mozambican-owned or registered companies in Mozambique over the Project’s five-year construction period.
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, 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. (20percent), ONGC Videsh Ltd. (10 percent), Beas Rovuma Energy Mozambique Limited (10percent), BPRL Ventures Mozambique B.V. (10 percent), and PTTEP Mozambique Area 1 Limited (8.5 percent).Source: Anadarko Moçambique Area 1
