Pemba is the capital of Cabo Delgado Province, the northern most province of Mozambique bordering Tanzania. Together, Anadarko (American) and ENI (Italian) as consortium leaders of off-shore areas 1 and 4, respectively, have discovered gas fields potentially suitable to transform and export as LNG to asian markets. The resources discovered in exploration phases on the off-shore areas are in the range of 100 to 120 tcf gas in place.
Statoil (Norwegian) and Petronas (Malaysian) each hold two large contiguous exploration blocks South of the Anadarko and Eni blocks. The image to the right shows some of the current discoveries and the sizes of the blocks with their respective consortium leaders.
Anadrako and ENI have decided to use Pemba as the hub for their upstream off-shore activities. Seven of the top ten E&P companies are also basing operations in Pemba.
Anadarko’s projected location for the LNG plant for Cabo Delgado is Palma, the northern-most district on Mozambique’s vast shoreline. It is the closest land point from the gas fields that will likely be developed.
The coastline of Cabo Delgado is home to the Quirimbas archipelago, of approximately 27 islands, streatching from the border with Tanzania down nearly 250 km towards Pemba City. Pembaland also provide brokerage of some of these island investments that are for seeking development capital or are exiting, as well as locations on the pristine beaches along the Cabo Delgado coastline.
