Mozambique hopeful for LNG shipments to India by 2019

Mozambique’s minister for mineral resources is hopeful that the first LNG shipments from his country will start moving by 2019.

In a meeting at Petrotech 2014, Esperanca Bias discussed pricing and demand with M. Veerappa Moily, India’s petroleum and natural gas minister.

The Indian ministerial delegation has been invited to a formal signing of a memorandum of understanding between the two countries.

Oil & Natural Gas Corp. Ltd. said India has a committed demand of 8 trains of LNG, starting with 4 trains.

Moily urged the Mozambique minister to “expedite” consortium-related issues and “fast-track” development of discovered assets offshore Mozambique in deepwater Rovuma basin (OGJ Online, Aug. 26, 2013).

Indian firms hold 30% of the Anadarko Petroleum Corp.-operated project in Mozambique, ONGC said (OGJ Online, Oct. 7, 2013).

Mozambique asked India for assistance in training of youth. “We are starting just now and our people need training from Indian companies who have been there for a long time,” Bias sai.
