LNG projects have faced a buffeting amid the security crisis in Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado region. While the timeline for Eni’s 3.4m t/yr Coral South floating LNG project looks robust, bigger schemes face further delays as a shaken gas sector takes account of an insurgency that can no longer be ignored – and which also poses questions about stability in southern Tanzania as a new leadership there makes soothing noises about investment, write James Gavin and Marc Howard.

 The Islamist uprising in Mozambique’s northern Cabo Delgado province reached a new level of intensity when hundreds of militants attacked Palma on 24 March; the insurgents occupied the town for over a week. The Mozambique Armed Defense Forces (FADM) said on 4 April it had retaken control, but the state’s inability to protect its citizens and its largest foreign investor was plain to see as the jihadists carried out a swift, complex attack in which all its security forces were either killed or deserted.
