Building Oil Off Shore in Mozambique that Will Cause Massive Environmental Destruction

Mozambique has a floating liquefaction plant.It's Samsung Heavy Industries' (SHI) first offshore gas project. It is the first floating LNG facility in African deep waters and the third worldwide.In 2016, Eni signed a 20-year deal with BP to sell all of its LNG from the Coral field in Area 4 of the Rovuma Basin. Coral has 450 Bcm of resources.

The plant will start extracting gas from the Rovuma basin's Area 4 off Cabo Delgado in northern Mozambique in the second half of the year.
This ecosystem will suffer from LNG expansion. The Quirimbas National Park, a UNESCO biosphere reserve, will lose fishing grounds and coral reefs, mangroves, and seagrass beds.9 Dredging, rubbish disposal, and construction may harm endangered plants and animals.

    This is saddening... It's unfortunate that the first world countries are striving to transit to clean and sustainable energy while they are encouraging Africa to continue using and exploiting fossil fuels

      Oil offshore will bring nothing but disaster and suffering.

                  Its disappointing to see such projects when we are in the middle of a climate crisis.

                              Africa has already felt the impact of the Climate change, why should the country support such a project
