The Mozambique LNG Project started with the discovery of a vast quantity of natural gas off the coast of northern Mozambique in 2010, leading to a $20 billion Final Investment Decision in 2019. Now, through cooperation and responsible project planning, the project is on track to deliver LNG in 2024.
For now, our plans for the approximately 65 trillion cubic feet of recoverable natural gas include a two-train project with the ability to expand up to 43 million tonnes per annum (MTPA).
The Project is operated by TotalEnergies – the world’s second largest LNG player with a leading presence in Africa – which is uniquely qualified to ensure the Mozambique LNG Project helps to meet the world’s increasing demand for sustainable, reliable and cleaner energy sources.
The Project is committed to collaborating with Mozambican communities and government officials to safely develop these resources in a manner that protects the environment, encourages additional foreign investment, and contributes to the long-term social and economic stability of the country.
The Mozambique LNG Project will deliver a range of social and economic benefits to Mozambique.
Its geographic location positions the project well to meet Atlantic and Asia-Pacific market needs, as well as tap into the growing energy demands of the Middle East and Indian sub-continent.
In the short term, construction of the LNG facilities will provide opportunities for professional training, employment, and contracts for the supply of goods and services. The construction phase also manages environmental and social impacts and reduces risks.
In the medium-to-long term, the Mozambique LNG Project is foundational for diversifying Mozambique’s economic activities. The project will help to:
- Develop competent construction and operation workforces
- Develop subject matter experts that support those industries
- Generate revenue that will contribute to the socio-economic development of the country
