A Japanese firm has reached an agreement with ExxonMobil and its co-venture partners to supply H-100 gas turbine and compressor packages for the Rovuma LNG Phase 1 project in Mozambique.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, who was selected for the Rovuma LNG project, will be apart of the development of one of the world's largest natural gas liquefaction plants in Mozambique's remote northern area.

The project plan is for two liquefied natural gas trains, each expected to produce at least 7.6 million tonnes per annum (MTA). Read more: Equatorial Guinea concludes deal for Alen Unit gas monetisation project

MHI President & CEO Seiji Izumisawa commented: "We are pleased that ExxonMobil and their partners were the first to select MHI's H-100 driven compressor trains for their Rovuma LNG project and anticipate future uses for the flexible turbine design.

"...This project will allow us to demonstrate the benefits of MHI's LNG solution in terms of lower production costs, increased productivity, reduced complexity and lower lifecycle costs, while significantly reducing plant emissions."
