Royal Dutch Shell (RDS) along with Ophir Energy Plc (OPHR), Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM), Pavilion Energy (PE) and Statoil (STL) joint venture in partnership with Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) are planning to undertake the construction of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Tanzania.

The project involves the construction of two liquefied natural gas (LNG) export trains of 5 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) each.

It includes the construction of a processing plant, storage tanks and other related facilities, the installation of safety systems, and the laying of pipelines.

On October 3, 2012, KBR Inc. was awarded a contract to carry out pre-front end engineering and design (pre-FEED) studies.

In 2013, site selection activities were underway and proposals were submitted to locate a gas plant in the southern region of Lindi.

In June 2014, Genesis Oil & Gas Consultants was appointed to undertake upstream facilities required to develop large discoveries for concept selection and pre-FEED (front-end engineering and design) activities.

In May 2015, government allocated US$ 6 million to acquire the land and compensate 450 people in Lindi where the development was taking place.

In January 2016, TPDC acquired 2,071.7ha of land at a cost of US$6 million at Likong’o- Mchinga in Lindi.

In September 2016, Ministry of Energy and Minerals held consultations with Statoil ASA, ExxonMobil, BG Group, Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Ohir Energy Plc and Pavilion Energy Pte Ltd ahead of a stakeholders’ meeting set for the end of November 2016. Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC), Petroleum Upstream Regulatory Authority (Pura) and Tanzania Electric Supply Company (Tanesco) are also taking part in the discussions.

In December 2016, Tanzanian government initiated the negotiations of the Host Government Agreement (HGA) with the shareholders. HGA is a legal agreement between a foreign investor and a host government governing the rights and obligations of the investors and the local government concerning the development, construction, and operation of a project by the investors.

On January 26, 2017, drilling of two offshore gas wells completed as part of exploration.

In April 2017, the government submitted a draft agreement to the Ministry of Energy and Minerals, seeking to establish a HGA.

Environmental impact Assessment is expected to be completed by the end of 2017. The project is awaiting final investment decision. The Tanzanian government is in the process of finalizing up terms under HGA on which the investors will build and run the project. The signing of HGA is expected in 2018.

Detailed design is expected to be completed by 2020. The project is expected to be operational in 2029.
