Anadarko is looking for entities which may implement the resettlement process of people living in the part of northern Mozambique where it intends building a natural gas liquefaction plant, it announced today.
The development of the project involves the resettlement of about 1,500 households that own houses or engage in agricultural or fishing subsistence activities in the Afungi peninsula.
In the announcement published today in Notícias, Anadarko invites interested entities to submit their expressions of interest for the provision of “services related to the implementation of the approved Resettlement Plan” by June 11.
Anadarko leads the group of companies that will exploit offshore natural gas in Area 1, 40 kilometres off the coast of Cabo Delgado in northern Mozambique, on the border with Tanzania.
The investment, one of the largest ever seen in Mozambique, has no set date to move ahead, but the consortium is carrying out a number of associated works so that construction can proceed as swiftly as possible, Steve Wilson, Anadarko vice president and Mozambique director of the company, said in April.
Oil companies Eni and Exxonmobil form another group of companies exploring natural gas in the same region.
After drilling, the gas will be piped to the site on the Afungi peninsula, where it will be converted into liquid and loaded onto tankers for export.source: Lusa
