Our work in Mozambique

Mozambique is one of the most promising countries on the African continent for the energy sector. We have been operating in Mozambique since 2006, currently in the Exploration & Production sector.


Discovery and development of offshore resources

In 2006 we acquired an operator's share in Area 4, in the offshore basin of Rovuma, where in 2011 and 2014 we discovered supergiant resources of natural gas in the fields Coral, Mamba and Agulha, estimated to hold 2,400 billion cubic metres of gas. Coral South is the first deep-water gas development project in Mozambique. At the fifth round of bidding, Eni strengthened its presence in the country by acquiring the offshore licence A5-A, effective from January 2019. Eni has a 34% operator's share in the block. In May 2019, we also got exploration and development rights to the offshore blocks A5-B, Z5-C and Z5-D, in the deep waters of the Angoche and Zambezi basins, with a share of 10%.

In May 2019, the Mozambique Government approved the Rovuma LNG project development plan for the production, liquefaction and marketing of natural gas from three Mamba complex fields located in Area 4, two of which straddle with Area 1. We plan to develop a part of these reserves with an independent but coordinated plan with Total, the operator of the Area 1, to which a part of the non-straddling reserves will be added. Finally, we will build two onshore trains powered by 24 subsea wells for the processing and liquefaction of gas, and the storage and export of LNG with a total capacity of approximately 7.6 million tonnes a year each. Activities for the marketing of LNG are expected to start-up in 2024.

We create energy

We are contributing to implementing the Coral South and Rovuma LNG projects for the production and liquefaction of gas in Mozambique and we are committed to improving health services in the Palma district. Furthermore, in 2019, we signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Lurio (Unilurio) aimed at protecting the biodiversity of the Vamizi island marine sanctuary and contributed to the reconstruction of the Cabo Delgado roads hit by two cyclones.

Coral South

The Coral South project was launched in 2017, just three years following the drilling of the final exploratory well. We are building a floating facility for the treatment, liquefaction, storage and export of gas (FLNG) with a capacity of around 3.4 million tonnes of LNG per year, powered by 6 underwater wells with start-up expected in 2022. We will sell the gas to BP under a twenty-year contract with the other Area 4 licence holders.


Rovuma LNG

The Rovuma LNG project was put in place for the production, liquefaction and marketing of natural gas from three fields of the Mamba complex located in Area 4, offshore of the Rovuma Basin. The development plan was approved by the Mozambique Government in 2019. The development project for the first phase of the Rovuma LNG project includes the design and construction of two LNG liquefaction trains which will each produce 7.6 million tonnes of LNG per year.

Energy efficiency and sustainable cooking

Eighty-eight per cent of the roughly 40,000 families living in Pemba use coal as their cooking fuel, with only 11% relying on an electric oven. Through this project we are replacing 10,000 traditional stoves with new and improved ones, and reducing the deforestation caused by cutting wood for coal.

Healthcare project in Mozambico

The project, which ran from 2013 to 2017, was put in place to improve health services in the Palma district. The Eni Foundation supplied radiology, ultrasound and laboratory equipment to the health unit, improving the quality of services for patients. In addition, a home-birthing unit was set-up for pregnant women and an off-road vehicle was supplied to provide clinical services in the most remote areas of Palma.

Aprendemos brincando for spreading education

The educational project at the school in Paquitequete aimed to get more children into school, using innovative methods and unconventional teaching. The initiative resulted in far fewer children dropping out of school. It improved the level of basic literacy in the first year of primary school, as well as the quality of methodology and education.

Exploring Mozambique

The history of Mozambique is entwined with the life of explorer Vasco da Gama, who landed on its coast in 1498.

Today, Mozambique is one of the most promising African countries in the Oil&Gas sector.
