CPNC and partners eyeing second offshore LNG platform in Mozambique

Mozambique President Filipe Nyusi said in April that it is safe to restart the Cabo Delgado liquefied natural gas (LNG) project that was halted in April 2021 after rebel attacks on civilians.

Nyusi told a mining and energy conference in Maputo on Wednesday that Mozambique wanted to take advantage of the current high prices of LNG and the global shift towards cleaner sources of energy.

“The working environment and security in northern Mozambique makes it possible for Total to resume its activities any time,” Nyusi said.
