JFT – a consortium of Fluor, JGC Corp. of Japan and TechnipFMC of France – has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by Mozambique Rovuma Venture S.p.A. (MRV) for its Mozambique Rovuma LNG Phase 1 Project in Cabo Delgado, Mozambique with an immediate release of a limited notice-to-proceed.
“Fluor is pleased to have been selected for this strategic development and to partner with a team that combines considerable LNG expertise and design build capabilities on the African continent,” said Mark Fields, Group President of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business. “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.”
The project will develop Area 4 of the ultra-deep Rovuma Basin, a giant offshore natural gas field with up to 15 trillion ft3 of natural gas, located off the coast of Mozambique. It includes the construction of two natural gas liquefaction trains, with a total LNG nameplate capacity of 15.2 million tpy, as well as associated onshore facilities.
Nello Uccelletti, President Onshore/Offshore at TechnipFMC, added: “We are extremely honoured 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 monetisation and, in particular, in the LNG industry. It also reinforces the company’s positioning in the energy transition journey. TechnipFMC is a strong player in Mozambique, a strategic country for the company, and already present through key LNG and Subsea on-going projects. We are proud to serve our customer for the Rovuma project and will continue to accompany the industrial growth of the country, leveraging its resources and human capital.”
MRV is an incorporated joint venture owned by Eni, ExxonMobil and China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), which holds a 70% interest in the Area 4 exploration and production concession contract. Galp, KOGAS and Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos E.P. each hold a 10% interest.
The project team will be located in Farnborough, UK; Paris, France and Yokohama, Japan.
