With LNG market dynamics set to change from fears of oversupply to buoyant demand coming from China and rest of Asia, investors have confidently been backing more LNG projects in countries which are emerging as new gas players – among them Mozambique.
The country has seen the only LNG FID reached in 2017 from the ENI's Coral floating LNG facility off the coast of Mozambique with shareholder ExxonMobil. Separately, Anadarko - Mozambique LNG onshore facility is not far behind with their FID expected for the first half of 2019.
The CWC Group in partnership with ENH, Mozambique's national hydrocarbons agency, have been driving forwards the gas and LNG industry by hosting the official gas and LNG summit in the country.
Now in its 5th edition, the Mozambique Gas Summit & Exhibition with the support of MIREME and INP will take place in Maputo, Mozambique, from 31 October – 2 November 2018. This edition aims to highlight the bright prospects and promote successful collaborations between international and local companies.
Presenting to the attendees, first hand, will be the very parties involved in the creation of the gas projects like H.E. Ernesto Max Tonela, Minister of Mineral Resources & Energy, Republic of Mozambique, H.E. Júlio Parruque, Governor of Province Cabo Delgado, Republic of Mozambique, Steve Wilson, Vice President & Country Manager, Anadarko, Carlos Zacarias, President and INP Omar Mithá, Chairman & CEO, ENH.
This year's programme has been built to address the requirements for the next stages of development post FID, including National Content regulations, Corporate Social Responsibility and technology efficiencies.
