A joint venture involving the U.S. company CB&I and Japan’s Chiyoda Corp. has been picked to participate in a liquefied natural gas project in Mozambique, CB&I said Monday.

“CC JV, a joint venture comprising of CB&I and Chiyoda Corporation, has been awarded a contract for the Front End Engineering and Design for the onshore natural gas liquefaction facility project in an LNG park in the Cabo Delgado Province of . . . the Republic of Mozambique,” said a statement.

Mozambique lies at the southern tip of a fault line running along the east African coast to Somalia, forming a geologically inviting region for natural gas that has become the focus of an exploration boom in recent years.
