(2015-11-06) Japan’s Mitsui & Co Ltd will make a final investment decision (FID) on a liquefied natural gas (LNG) project off the coast of Mozambique by the end of March, its chief financial officer, Keigo Matsubara, said on Friday.
The FID was initially expected by the end of this year.
The negotiations with the local government on various conditions are taking time, Matsubara said.
