The project involves the construction of six subsea wells, which will connect to a floating LNG (FLNG) unit with a liquefaction capacity of 3.3 million tpy of LNG. Mozambique authorities approved the project development plan in February.
Eni and its Area 4 partners signed an agreement with BP in October to sell all LNG produced by the FLNG unit for a 20-year period. This was the first ever agreement signed in Mozambique for the sale of LNG produced in the country.
