Global oil and gas major TotalEnergies and its partners in the Mozambique LNG project have published an action plan on how they will progress with the development of the natural gas initiative in the southern African country.

The plan, proposed by human rights expert Jean-Christophe Rufin, aims to address the relationship between Mozambique LNG and the Cabo Delgado unrest. It involves implementing a socioeconomic development program, focusing on enhancing the local economy, infrastructure, and environmental sustainability in the region.

TotalEnergies will invest $200 million to expedite resettlement and compensation for affected communities, provide solar PV systems to all households in Quitunda, enhance livelihood support, construct and rehabilitate schools and roads, install street lights, and establish agriculture activities in neighboring villages.

While the security situation in the region has improved, as stated by Jean-Christophe Rufin’s findings, TotalEnergies’ action plan includes maximizing relations between Mozambique LNG and the Mozambican Defense Forces to optimize the project’s security.

Mozambique LNG is a $20 billion liquefied natural gas (LNG) development targeting the extraction of approximately 65 trillion cubic feet of recoverable gas reserves leveraging a two-train LNG platform with the capacity to produce 43 million tons of LNG per annum.

TotalEnergies is partnering with India’s ONGC Videsh, Oil India Limited and Bharat Petroleum, Thailand’s PTTEP, Mozambique’s Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos and Japanese conglomerate Mitsui & Co to fund and implement the project.
