Anadarko Petroleum Corp. and partners reached a milestone in the development of natural gas from the Golfinho and Atum fields in Mozambique’s Offshore Area 1, having gained approval of field development plans from the government.

By tying the subsea wells to shore via a subsea gathering system, capable of handling about 57 MMcm/d (2 Bcf/d) of gas, Anadarko and partners will help put Mozambique on the map as a global LNG supplier.

The development takes shape as forecasts show LNG demand will outpace supply.
