Mozambique should begin producing natural gas

The project provides for the construction of six subsea wells connected to a floating production unit (FLNG), with a capacity of more than 3,300,000 liquefaction tons of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per year, equivalent to about 5 billion cubic meters.

In February 2016, the Mozambican authorities have approved the plan of development of the project. The field, discovered in may 2012 and described in 2013, is located at area 4 and contains approximately 450 billion cubic metres (16 TCF) of gas. In addition to the ENI-led consortium, the Rovuma basin has a consortium led by u.s.-based Anadarko, which has not yet announced the final investment decision on the project.
