EGS begins survey off Mozambique for Anadarko

EGS Survey, a marine survey services company, has begun a ‘major’ offshore hydrographic and geophysical survey for Anadarko’s Mozambique Area 1 (AMA1) LNG development.

EGS said that the survey was expected to last up to three months and involved deploying a range of hydrographic and geophysical survey tools in a remote environment.

The company added that offshore operations included shallow and deep water high resolution geophysical and hydrographic surveys, utilizing EGS’ vessel RV Ridley Thomas and the recently acquired shallow daughter craft.

The surveys will support the onshore development of two liquefaction trains to be constructed by Anadarko-led Area 1.

EGS VP Chris Dougherty stated that EGS worked closely with Anadarko in the time leading up to the beginning of field operations so that the team of 15 offshore geophysicists, surveyors, and engineers can be as well prepared for the variety of survey tasks to be performed at the remote site.

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.

In July 2017, Anadarko finalized two agreements with the Government of Mozambique which will allow the company to design, build and operate the marine facilities for its LNG project in the country.
