The contract was awarded by Mozambique Rovuma Venture (MRV). It is a joint-venture composed of Eni, ExxonMobil, and CNPC and it holds a 70% interest in the exploration and production concession of Area 4, with Galp, Kogas and Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos (ENH) each holding a 10% interest.

The Rovuma LNG Project will produce, liquefy, and market natural gas from three reservoirs of the Mamba complex located in the Area 4 block in the Offshore Rovuma Basin. It includes the construction of two natural gas liquefaction trains, with a total LNG nameplate capacity of 15.2 Mtpa, as well as associated onshore facilities.

Nello Uccelletti, President Onshore/Offshore at TechnipFMC, commented: “We are extremely honored to have been awarded by MRV this new prestigious LNG project along with our long-time partners, JGC and Fluor. This award confirms the market recognition of TechnipFMC’s expertise and track record in gas monetization and, in particular, in the LNG industry. It also reinforces the Company’s positioning in the energy transition journey.”

Mark Fields, group president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business, said: “We worked closely to develop the project model that builds upon each party’s strengths and capabilities to partner with MRV to advance this landmark project in a safe, secure and sustainable manner creating new opportunities for Mozambique and its citizens.”

Fluor said that the project team would be located in Farnborough, UK; Paris, France, and Yokohama, Japan.

The government of Mozambique approved the development plan for the Rovuma LNG project in May 2019. LNG production from the project is expected to begin in 2024.
