Report summary

Anadarko and Eni’s multiple giant gas discoveries since 2010 established a major new play in deepwater offshore Mozambique. Over 130 tcf of gas has been discovered, and we expect a further 20 tcf will be added by future exploration out to 2035.Northern Mozambique lacks a significant domestic gas market and greenfield LNG is the only viable route to commercialising the enormous volumes of gas.
