Worley scores Mozambique LNG services deal from Total
Australian engineering company Worley has been awarded two master service agreements (MSAs) by French major Total for services on the Mozambique LNG project.
Worley said on Thursday that it would provide in-and-out of country services, including engineering, consulting and specialist engineering for delivery of onshore and offshore (subsea) facilities.
According to Worley, the services will support the development of the new LNG facility.
The company added that it would execute the services from its local Mozambique operation with support from its global businesses including Advisian.
It is worth noting that the company has been involved in the LNG development located on the Afungi peninsula in Cabo Delgado province since gas was first discovered there in 2010.
Andrew Wood, CEO of Worley, said: “We are pleased to continue providing services to the LNG development and to support one of Africa’s largest projects.
“Through the MSAs, we will help Total and its partners in the Mozambique LNG Project meet the world’s changing energy needs.”
Mozambique LNG was sanctioned in June 2019 by Anadarko and its co-venturers in Mozambique’s Offshore Area 1.
Total bought Anadarko’s 26.5 percent operated interest in the Mozambique LNG project in September 2019 for $3.9 billion.
Mozambique LNG is the country’s first onshore LNG development and includes the development of the Golfinho and Atum fields located within Offshore Area 1 and the construction of a two-trains liquefaction plant with a capacity of 12.9 million tonnes per year.
Area 1 contains more than 60 Tcf of gas resources, of which 18 Tcf will be developed with the first two trains with the production scheduled to begin by 2024.
Total is the operator of the Mozambique LNG with a 26.5 percent participating interest alongside ENH Rovuma Área Um (15 percent), Mitsui (20 percent), ONGC Videsh (10 percent), Beas Rovuma Energy Mozambique (10 percent), BPRL Ventures (10 percent), and PTTEP (8.5 percent).
