Project Description

According to bank documents, the Project involves the Area 4 Exploration and Production Concession, located in the Rovuma Basin of Northern Mozambique, and is designed to gather, process and export
(in liquefied form) natural gas. The Concession, which will be operated by Mozambique Rovuma Venture S.p.A., extends 50 km offshore and involves the initial extraction of up to 12 trillion cubic feet of dry natural gas and ultimate production of approximately 50 million tons per annum (MTPA) of liquefied natural gas (LNG). The upstream portion of the Project consists of 24 wells, subsea intra-field gathering system, export sea line system and subsea network control system from onshore via umbilical. The midstream portion of the Project involves the construction of two onshore liquefaction trains with a
nameplate capacity of 2 x 7.6 MTPA; two, 200,000 m3 LNG storage tanks; and two, 45,000 m3 condensate tanks will be constructed to support production from the two trains. The Rovuma LNG liquefaction facility (midstream) will be located on the Afungi Peninsula on the southern shores of Palma Bay close to the town of Palma.
