The Mozambican Government has announced that liquified natural gas (LNG) production at the Rovuma basin by the Coral Sul floating platform (FLNG) moored off the coast of Cabo Delgado in northern Mozambique is scheduled to commence within the following seven months. Council of Ministers Spokesperson Filimão Suaze has stated that the first results in terms of production are expected to be available within October 2022. Suaze has also noted plans to provide training to Mozambicans on board the infrastructure. The Coral Sul gas extraction and liquefaction platform is the first deepwater project of its kind to be developed in Africa. Production of an estimated 3.4 million tons of natural gas is set to be conducted within Mozambique’s Exploitation Area 4, to be sold to BP for a period of 20 years, with an option to extend it for an additional ten years. Area 4 is operated by Mozambique Rovuma Venture (MRV), a joint venture which holds a 70% participating interest in the concession contract, co-owned by ExxonMobil, Eni and CNPC. – 2022©️Willshir & Associates – Business Intelligence Program
