Following a meeting on Tuesday, the President of Mozambique, Filipe Nyusi, and Anadarko Petroleum Corporation Chairman and CEO, Al Walker, announced plans for Mozambique LNG to make an important announcement during a celebratory event on June 18, 2019 in Maputo.

In a statement, Anadarko said that it was also noted that all issues under negotiation between the Government of Mozambique and Anadarko have been satisfactorily resolved.

“We expect June 18 will become a historic day in Mozambique as we announce that one of the most important and transformational projects in our country’s history is ready to advance to the next stage,” said President Nyusi. “We recognise Anadarko’s continued commitment to moving this project forward to becoming a reality.” Read more: Chevron acquires shares of Anadarko for LNG project in Mozambique

“With commitments for financing in place, off-take secured, and all other issues under negotiation successfully addressed, we are excited to take the next step with the expected announcement of a Final Investment Decision (FID) for the Mozambique LNG project on June 18,” said Walker.

“Mozambique LNG is among the most significant projects that our company or any other has undertaken, given the scale of the project, size of the resource, and the potential long-term transformational benefits it represents for Mozambique.

"We are grateful for the continued support of the people and government of Mozambique, our co-venturers, and the thousands of men and women working in the Cabo Delgado region to develop this exciting project. We look forward to celebrating the official sanctioning of Mozambique LNG on June 18.”
