Anadarko Petroleum Corporation have announced that Mozambique LNG1 Company Pte. Ltd., the jointly owned sales entity of the Mozambique Area 1 co-venturers, has signed a Heads of Agreement (HoA) with Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd. (Tokyo Gas) and Centrica LNG Company Ltd. (Centrica) for the long-term supply of LNG.
The co-purchasing off-take agreement calls for the delivered ex-ship supply of 2.6 million tpy from the start-up of production until the early 2040s.
"Tokyo Gas and Centrica have a strong global reputation in the industry, and we are delighted they have made this commitment to the Mozambique LNG project," said Mitch Ingram, Anadarko Executive Vice President, International, Deepwater & Exploration. "At 2.6 [million tpy], this HoA represents a significant portion of the marketing off-take target we have set for FID, and it further reinforces our previous updates on the project, which have stated our focus now is on converting these non-binding commitments into fully termed Sale and Purchase Agreements. Importantly, this HoA brings together the Anadarko-led Mozambique LNG project and two additional prestigious customers, and it is closely aligned with the Japanese government's desire for a competitively priced and flexible long-term supply of LNG to enhance the nation's energy security.”
"This off-take arrangement takes full advantage of Mozambique's favourable central location, which enables Mozambique LNG to supply customers in both the European and Asian-Pacific markets," added Ingram. "The innovative co-purchasing arrangement provides flexibility to assist both customers in proactively managing demand fluctuations in their own home markets."
The Anadarko-operated Mozambique LNG project will be Mozambique's first onshore LNG development, initially consisting of two LNG trains with total nameplate capacity of 12.88 million tpy to support the development of the Golfinho/Atum fields located entirely within Offshore Area 1.
