Under the agreement signed by Mozambique LNG1 Company, a sales entity owned by the Mozambique Area 1 co-venturers, Shell will purchase 2 million tons of LNG per year on a 13-year term.

The deal takes the long-term sales from the project to 7.5 mtpa, Mitch Ingram, Anadarko executive vice president, international, deepwater & exploration, said.

The Anadarko-operated Mozambique LNG project will be Mozambique’s first onshore LNG development, initially consisting of two LNG trains with a total nameplate capacity of 12.88 mtpa to support the development of the Golfinho/Atum fields located entirely within Offshore Area 1.

Anadarko Moçambique Área 1, a unit of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, operates Offshore Area 1 with a 26.5-percent working interest.

Co-venturers include ENH Rovuma Área (15 percent), Mitsui E&P Mozambique Area1 (20 percent), ONGC Videsh (10 percent), Beas Rovuma Energy Mozambique (10 percent), BPRL Ventures Mozambique (10 percent), and PTTEP Mozambique Area 1 (8.5 percent).
