Anadarko Petroleum Corporation has announced that it had finalised two agreements with the Government of Mozambique – together known as the "marine concessions" – which would allow it to design, build and operate the marine facilities for its LNG project in northern Mozambique. This follows the publication of the Mozambican Government Decrees approving those agreements.

“This is a key milestone on the path to a final investment decision (FID) for our initial two-train LNG project," says Mitch Ingram, Anadarko Executive Vice President, Global LNG. "It marks the completion of the core components of the Legal and Contractual Framework with the Government. We will now look ahead with our plans to begin resettlement, which will enable the construction of the LNG plant. In addition, we continue to make good progress with our efforts to secure long-term LNG Sales and Purchase Agreements (SPAs) with premier buyers, and we will intensify our work to put in place the necessary financing for the project. We expect to take FID once the SPAs and financing are in place.”

Anadarko is developing Mozambique's first onshore LNG plant consisting of two initial LNG trains with a total capacity of 12 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) to support the Golfinho/Atum field located entirely within Offshore Area 1.

Anadarko operates Offshore Area 1 with a 26.5% working interest. Co-venturers include Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos E.P. (ENH) (15%), Mitsui E&P Mozambique Area1 Ltd. (20%), ONGC Videsh Ltd. (16%), Bharat PetroResources Ltd. (10%), PTT Exploration & Production Plc (8.5%), and Oil India Ltd. (4%).
