The Woodlands-based Anadarko Petroleum Corp. (NYSE: APC) is moving forward with its onshore project in Mozambique that was first announced in 2012.

The Government of Mozambique has officially approved Anadarko’s development plans for the Golfinho-Atum Field in which the company will oversee the country’s first onshore LNG development, according to a release.

The initial plans call for two LNG trains with the capacity of 12.88 million tons per year to support the Golfinho-Atum fields in the Area 1 of the Rovuma Offshore Basin in Mozambique, per the release. The Golfinho-Atum Project will also supply about 100 million cubic feet of natural gas per day for the country’s domestic use.

The LNG park will be scalable and can be expanded up to 50 million tons per year, according to an Anadarko fact sheet about the project. Since 2010, the company has discovered about 75 trillion cubic feet of recoverable natural gas in Area 1, which includes four other gas fields in addition to Golfinho-Atum.
