Total May Add 2 Trains to Mozambique LNG

Wednesday, November 6, 2019

Mike Sangster, head of Total Exploration and Production for Nigeria, presenting to delegates at the Africa Oil Week conference in Cape Town, South Africa, said that Total aims to expand its Mozambique liquefied natural gas (LNG) project with two additional trains, or plants, where the gas is super-chilled for easier transport.

Total just recently concluded a deal for the Mozambique assets with Occidental Petroleum who purchased Anadarko, the former operator of the project.

In September, Total announced the closing of the acquisition of Occidental’s 26.5% operated interest in the Mozambique LNG project for a purchase price of $3.9 billion.
