TotalEnergies has no firm plans to revive activities on its stalled Mozambique LNG project in 2022 and will only return to insurgency-hit Cabo Delgado province when refugees are back living in their villages, said chief executive Patrick Pouyanne today.

The French supermajor declared force majeure on the $20 billion project in March 2021 after Islamist insurgents attacked Palma town in Cabo Delgado, close to the Afungi LNG construction site, killing local people and overseas workers.
