Exxon Mobil looks to Build Mozambique LNG Export Facility


Exxon Mobil is planning to build a Mozambique liquefied natural gas (LNG)
export facility and is looking to expand operations at its Papua New Guinea and
Qatari LNG projects, a senior company official said on Wednesday.

The company is also concerned by the lack of new LNG project approvals over
the past two years even as many projects were cancelled, said Frank Kretschmer,
Senior Vice-President of Exxon Mobil Asia Pacific’s LNG Marketing division.

“It is concerning that very little has happened on new final investment
decisions over the last two years and at the same time we have seen quite a few
projects cancelled,” he said.
“Being the most reliable, lowest cost project is the only way to survive
industry cycles.”
