Anadarko Petroleum on behalf of the co-venturers in Mozambique’s Offshore Area 1, and after a competitive FEED (front-end engineering and design) process, has announced the selection of a consortium consisting of CB&I, Chiyoda Corporation and Saipem (CCS JV) for the initial development of the onshore LNG park in Mozambique.
The scope of the work for the onshore LNG park includes two LNG trains, each with capacity of 6 MMTPA, which is an increase of 1 MMTPA per train over the original plan, while maintaining an estimated cost that is consistent with the co-venturers’ original projections.
