Van Oord, TechnipFMC awarded $1bn contract for Mozambique LNG project

Van Oord, in consortium with TechnipFMC, has been awarded a contract by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation for the LNG project Area 1 Mozambique Golfinho/Atum. 

The contract will cover the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of the subsea systems. Van Oord will execute the shallow offshore installation scope while its consortium partner TechnipFMC is responsible for the deep-water scope. The total contract value for the consortium TechnipFMC and Van Oord is over $1bn. 

 “We are proud to be part of this prestigious project and look forward to working with TechnipFMC for Anadarko to deliver this important piece of energy transition infrastructure which will allow Mozambique to unlock its natural resources,” said Maurits den Broeder, managing director Van Oord Offshore.  

The Anadarko-led Area 1 Mozambique LNG project will be Mozambique’s first onshore LNG development, initially consisting of two LNG trains with total nameplate capacity of 12.88 mtpa to support the development of the Golfinho/Atum fields located entirely within Offshore Area 1. 

 The upcoming months will be dedicated to project preparation. The works will be carried out under strict environmental requirements. Execution will start in 2021.
