April 3, 2023 [gasworld] – The US energy giant ExxonMobil intends to boost the capacity of the planned Rovuma LNG onshore terminal in Mozambique.
Mozambique Rovuma Venture (MRV) is the operator of the deepwater Area 4 block in the Rovuma basin off Mozambique that would feed the planned LNG export plant on the Afungi peninsula from the Mamba reservoirs.
ExxonMobil is leading the construction and operation of the liquefaction and related facilities on behalf of MRV, and Eni is leading the construction and operation of the upstream facilities.
The partners are planning an onshore LNG plant with multiple liquefaction units, each with about 1.5 mtpa nominal design capacity, for a total of up to 18 mtpa for the first phase of the project.
ExxonMobil’s unit in Mozambique is inviting companies to submit an expression of interest to provide front-end engineering design and a potential engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning for the midstream portion of the project’s first phase.
The interested party must provide evidence of being “a major EPC contractor with proven experience” in onshore LNG plants, it said.
According to ExxonMobil, candidates will be subsequently required to sign a confidentiality agreement and submit more detailed information in response to a separately issued qualification questionnaire to establish their qualifications based on additional criteria.
The deadline for submission of the expression of interest is 5pm, Maputo time, on March 31.
