Japan's MHI to Supply Equipment for Rovuma LNG Project
Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) April 1 said it has reached an agreement with ExxonMobil and its co-venture partners to supply H-100 gas turbine and compressor packages for the Rovuma LNG Phase 1 project in Mozambique.
“Subject to final investment decision on the project, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor Corporation (MCO) will supply the main liquefaction compressors, and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) will provide dual-shaft, 120-megawatt H-100 gas turbines as the mechanical drivers,” the company said.
The development plan for the first phase of the Rovuma LNG project specifies the proposed design and construction of two liquefied natural gas trains, which will each produce 7.6mn metric tons/yr of LNG.
Mozambique Rovuma Venture, an incorporated joint venture owned by ExxonMobil, Eni and CNPC, holds a 70% stake in the Area 4 exploration and production concession contract alongside ENH, Galp and Kogas, each of which have 10%.
