The floating platform for the production of Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG), in Area 4 of the Rovuma Basin, employs over 100 Mozambicans, announced this Monday, May 8, the general manager of Eni Rovuma Basin, Giorgio Vicini. The enterprise is installed about 30 kilometers from Palma district, in Cabo Delgado province.
Speaking yesterday in Maputo, during the Forum on Energy Transition and Industrialization, Giorgio Vicini said that the number is a sign apart from the expression that the Mozambican Government gives to the project.
“The presence of Mozambicans is a great sign for the extension of the FLNG project, as well as for the development of communities,” said Giorgio Vicini, quoted by the Mozambique Information Agency (AIM).
About the energy transition, the official said it is of vital importance for the development of the floating project, and added that plans around the energy transition can be designed with the support of local communities, including Mozambican and Italian companies that contribute to the process.
“This is the spirit of our Enrico Mattei [an Italian revolutionary fighter] who, in times past, taught us this modality of operating side by side with the communities,” Giorgio Vicini pointed out.
