Van Oord Awarded Large Contract for Mozambique
Van Oord in consortium with TechnipFMC has been awarded a contract by Anadarko Moçambique Área 1, a wholly owned subsidiary of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, for its Area 1 Mozambique Golfinho/Atum development. 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. Maurits den Broeder, Managing Director Van Oord Offshore, stated, “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.”
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. Van Oord is dedicated to explore opportunities to mitigate and manage impacts, and optimise positive environmental
and social benefits. Execution will start in 2021.
