Oil and gas supermajor ExxonMobil is set to boost the capacity of its planned Rovuma Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) onshore terminal in Mozambique. Originally envisaged as a 15.2 million ton per annum (mtpa) export facility, the expansion project is poised to boost production to approximately 18 mtpa in its first phase.

The project will include the construction of two natural gas liquefaction trains in addition to an onshore LNG plant with multiple liquefaction units.

The Rovuma LNG plant will receive as much as six billion cubic feet of natural gas per day from three reservoirs in the Area 4 Block of the Rovuma Basin, offshore Mozambique. The Block is operated by the Mozambique Rovuma Venture (MRV), a joint venture owned by multinational energy company, Eni; national oil and gas corporation, the China National Petroleum Corporation and ExxonMobil.

ExxonMobil will lead the construction and operation of the expansion project on behalf of MRV, while Eni will lead the construction and operation of the upstream facilities.

The energy major is now calling on firms to submit their expression of interest for a front-end engineering design contract for the midstream portion of the project’s first phase.

According to ExxonMobil, candidates will need to be a major engineering, procurement, and construction contractor with proven experience in onshore LNG plants. The deadline for submission of the expression of interest is set for 31 March.
