Anadarko Petroleum Corp. has selected a consortium consisting of CB&I, Chiyoda Corp. and Saipem (CCS JV) for the initial development of the onshore LNG project in Mozambique.
Commenting on the selection, Al Walker, President and CEO, said: "Selecting CCS JV for the development of the onshore Mozambique LNG park is a significant step toward reaching FID (final investment decision) and demonstrates our continued commitment to advancing this important project toward first cargoes.
"I am incredibly proud of our co-venture for all of the accomplishments achieved to date, including securing more than 8 million tpy in non-binding long-term off-take agreements, which are now progressing toward binding SPAs (sales and purchase agreements), obtaining letters of intent from lenders for project financing at a very material level, and working with the newly elected government to keep the project moving forward.
“We also congratulate the contractor group, CCS JV, on its selection, and look forward to working with the Offshore Area 1 co-venturers to submit a Plan of Development in the coming months for the government's consideration."
The scope of work for the onshore LNG project includes two LNG trains, each with capacity of 6 million tpy; two LNG storage tanks, each with capacity of 180 000 m3; condensate storage; multi-berth marine jetty; and associated utilities and infrastructure.
