The government of Mozambique has accorded approval for the development plan for Golfinho-Atum natural gas field in the Area 1 block in Rovuma Offshore Basin of Mozambique. ONGC Videsh Limited recently announced it.

The plan envisages integrated development of Golfinho-Atum field through an initial two train onshore liquefaction plant with a total processing capacity of 12.88 million metric ton per annum (MMTPA). The Golfinho-Atum project will also supply initial volumes of approximately 100 million cubic feet of natural gas per day for domestic sales for Mozambique’s industrial development which will have significant socio-economic impact.

The plan’s approval is the culmination of several years of progress on technical and commercial aspects of the development, ONGC Videsh said in an official statement.

This foundational project paves the way for significant future expansion of up to 50 MMTPA from Offshore Area 1. The Area 1 block located in the deep-water Rovuma Basin offshore Mozambique is one of the largest gas discoveries in offshore east Africa with estimated recoverable resources of approximately 75 trillion cubic feet.

With the approval of major legal and contractual framework agreements and the start of resettlement implementation activities and site preparation, the approval of the development plan is a significant milestone in the further progress of the Mozambique Rovuma Area-1 offshore project.
