Mota-Engil, Besix win Mozambique LNG contract

A partnership consisting of Portugal’s Mota-Engil and Besix of Belgium has secured a contract for the Total-led $20 billion Mozambique LNG export project.

Under the deal, the 50/50 partnership will build a pier bridge and an offloading facility for about $365 million, according to a Mota-Engil statement.

The deal has been awarded by Mozambique LNG plant main contractor CCS JV.

The company is a joint venture compromising of McDermott, Saipem and Chiyoda.

Mota-Engil says the works will last 32 months, starting in the first half of 2020.

Anadarko and its co-venturers in Area 1 offshore development sanctioned Mozambique LNG in June 2019.

Total purchased Anadarko’s 26.5 percent interest in the LNG project in September last year for $3.9 billion.

The project will initially consist of two LNG trains in Cabo Delgado with a capacity of 12.88 mtpa.

The production units will get gas the Golfinho/Atum fields located entirely within Area 1.

Area 1 contains more than 60 trillion cubic feet of gas resources, of which 18 Tcf will be developed with the first two trains.

Total expects production to begin by 2024.
