Anadarko announces advancement of Mozambique LNG project

Friday, Dec 21, 2012

Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: APC) today announced that it has reached Heads of Agreement (HOA) with Eni, establishing foundational principles for the coordinated development of the common natural gas reservoirs spanning both Mozambique's Offshore Area 1 (operated by Anadarko) and Offshore Area 4 (operated by Eni). The HOA is designed to facilitate a work program whereby the two operators will conduct separate, yet coordinated, offshore development activities, while jointly planning and constructing common onshore liquefaction facilities in the form of an LNG (liquefied natural gas) park in the Cabo Delgado Province of northern Mozambique.

"Reaching an HOA with Eni is a significant step that preserves the project timeline," said Anadarko President and CEO Al Walker. "We expect the HOA to lead to a unitization agreement to further facilitate the efficient development of the common resources, as well as the independent reservoirs on both blocks, enabling enhanced economies of scale through shared infrastructure and facilities. Our commercial and technical teams have proven the ability to work collaboratively through these discussions, as we work alongside the Mozambican government toward a shared target of first LNG cargoes in 2018."
