- Status: Proposed
- Start Year: 2023
Note: mtpa = million tonnes per year; bcfd = billion cubic feet per day
The project may include wellhead platforms tied back to an onshore gas processing plant based in Limbe, Cameroon. Potential scenarios include a tieback to the Punta Europa LNG Terminal and Methanol onshore plant on Bioko Island in Equatorial Guinea, or using the Golar LNG-owned Cameroon FLNG project which operates at Perenco's Cameroon FLNG project, or using a new near shore small scale FLNG, being called Etinde FLNG Terminal. The Cameroon government has sanctioned the Etinde FLNG Terminal, but this option would require additional gas sources to be economically viable in the longer term. The Etinde Exploitation Authorisation (EA) includes a right for the government to terminate the EA early if development plans are not implemented by January 2021. New Age operates Etinde with a 37.5% working interest. Bowleven and Lukoil are partners with a 25% and 37.5% working interest, respectively.
The final investment decision (FID) was originally expected in the end of 2020, but has been delayed until the end of 2021.
