We have interests of 35.5% and 38%, respectively, in trains one and two of the Egyptian LNG (ELNG) plant. In January 2014, force majeure notices were issued under the LNG agreements as a result of domestic gas diversions severely restricting volumes available to ELNG. These notices remain in place. See “Additional Integrated Gas data”.
A feasibility study is ongoing for a potential GTL project, under a memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed with the government of Mozambique in 2017.
We have a 25.6% interest in Nigeria LNG Ltd, which operates six LNG trains located on Bonny Island.
We have a 60% interest in, and are the operator of, Blocks 1 and 4 offshore southern Tanzania. The blocks cover approximately 4,000 square kilometres of the Mafia Deep Offshore Basin and the northern part of the Rovuma Basin. We continue to develop a potential LNG project with partners in Block 2, in line with the Block 1 and 4 appraisal programme agreed with the Tanzanian government. We are engaging with the government to extend the Block 4 licence. The government has confirmed that the Block 4 licence, due to initially expire on October 31, 2017, remains in full force pending the grant of the licence extension.
Rest of Africa
We have a 17.9% share in the West African Gas Pipeline Company Limited, which owns and operates a 678-kilometre pipeline that transports gas from Nigeria to Ghana, Benin and Togo. We also have interests in Gabon and Morocco.
