Anadarko Petroleum will supply Mozambique with natural gas

4 December 2015

US group Anadarko Petroleum has agreed with the government of Mozambique to supply the domestic market with natural gas to be extracted in the Rovuma basin, the group said in a statement issued Thursday in Houston, Texas.

The statement said that under the agreement, Area 1 block partners will provide 50 million cubic feet of natural gas per day for each processing unit in Mozambique for domestic consumption totalling 100 million cubic feet per day.

Natural gas will be supplied at a price that is deemed fair for the parties and for the development of mining projects, the statement said. Additionally the concession holders are prepared eventually to sell up to an additional 300 million cubic feet per day, “provided there is agreement on the commercial terms.”

The executive vice president of Anadarko Petroleum, Mitch Ingram, was quoted in the statement saying “we intend to continue to work with the government of Mozambique to finalise the legal and contractual framework, which will enable us to supply natural gas for domestic projects and for export, which will bring benefits to Mozambique.” (macauhub/MZ)
