Bechtel awarded FEED contract for a new LNG project in Mozambique

Monday, Jan 21, 2013

HOUSTON, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bechtel has been selected by AnadarkoMocambique Area 1, Limitada to perform a front end engineering and design (FEED) for a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility in the Republic of Mozambique. This is the first LNG project in the country.

"The Mozambique LNG FEED award builds on Bechtel's extensive experience in LNG and in Africa, where we have worked for more than 50 years," said Jack Futcher, president of Bechtel's Oil, Gas and Chemicals business unit. "We are excited by the prospect of working with Anadarko and its partners to develop a world-class facility that will bring jobs and economic development to Mozambique."

The FEED is for the initial phase of the onshore LNG facility that will be built in the Cabo Delgado province in the northeast of the country. Bechtel will develop a design for a multi-train liquefaction plant with a nominal train capacity of five million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA) of LNG, and an overall LNG park plan that will allow for future expansion of the facility to approximately 50 MMTPA. First commercial LNG sales from the facility are planned for 2018.

Bechtel is a global leader in the LNG industry, having successfully delivered 28 LNG trains in nine countries, including Trinidad, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, and Australia. In addition, through the Global LNG Collaboration with ConocoPhillips, Bechtel is currently building four LNG facilities in Australia and an export facility in the United States.
