Eni and the Area 4 partners tremendous progress in Cora Sul FLNG has being beoughr to fore, This was announced in Geoje, South Korea at the launch of the hull of the Coral Sul Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) treatment and liquefaction facility. The FLNG is part of the Coral South project that will put in production 450 billion cubic meters of gas of the Coral reservoir, offshore Mozambique. The launch marks the timely progress of the project, which exceeds 60% completion and is in line with production start up by 2022. The hull is 432 meters long, 66 meters wide and weighs approximately 140,000 tons. Its eight-storey accommodation module, which will house up to 350 people, is also ready to be lifted and integrated with the hull system. Fabrication activities are also well underway for the 12 gas treatment and LNG modules, with all main equipment ready for integration and first deck stacking executed. With a gas liquefaction capacity of 3.4 million tons per year (MTPA),

“The Coral Sul FLNG hull launching is an outstanding milestone which has been possible thanks to the commitment of Eni, its Area 4 partners, contractors and Mozambican authorities. We share the belief that Coral South is a pioneering project that will trigger further developments and new investments”. the Coral Sul FLNG will be the first FLNG ever deployed in deep waters, at water depth of approximately 2,000 meters, and the first purpose-build FLNG in Africa.

Coral South is the first LNG project in Mozambique. It includes initiatives aimed at enhancing the overall capabilities of the local workforce and supply chain, as well as to develop local SMEs. Direct training and recruitment activities for more than 800 M o z a m b i c a n s a r e u n d e r Mozambique : Coral Sul FLNG Exceeds 60% Completion as Eni and Partners Launch Facility Hull ir Products has signed up to Asuppl y two LNG heat exchangers to the Total-led Mozambique LNG venture. The company said its facility in Port Manatee, Florida, would manufacture the equipment, which would then be shipped to the Afungi Peninsula, in Mozambique’s northern Cabo Delgado Province. Air Products has signed the deal with the contractor, CCS JV, a joint venture made up of Chiyoda, McDermott and Saipem. The two proprietary coil wound main cryogenic heat exchangers (MCHE) would go to supporting the two trains at the site, which will produce 12.88 million tons per year of LNG. “Our LNG heat exchangers are in operation around the world, and when this project goes onstream we can add Mozambique to the growing list of countries where we play a key role in meeting the world’s clean energy needs through the production of LNG,” said Air Products’ executive vice president Samir Serhan.

“Our LNG business is encouraged by the activity in the market and customers should know that Air P r o d u c t s ‘ e x p a n d e d manufacturing facility is capable of addres s ing their LNG technological needs anywhere in the world.” CCS JV’s chairman Roberto Uberti said the contractor was working to build “one of the most efficient facilities in the LNG space. We are carefully selecting rel iable and experienced technology providers and under this perspective the benefits of Air Products involvement are clearly consistent.” Gas for the two trains will come from the offshore Golfinho/Atum fields. The Mozambique LNG project is expected to start producing in 2024. Worley won two master service agreements (MSAs) from Total for work on the Mozambique LNG project in February. Air Products is also working on the Coral Sul floating LNG (FLNG) project, which is expected to begin producing offshore Mozambique in 2022. The company has agreed to supply a cryogenic heat exchanger to the FLNG project, in addition to a medium and high purity nitrogen package, under contracts awarded in 2017.
