South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries has recently lifted the flare boom onboard Eni’s Coral Sul FLNG that will be used for a project offshore Mozambique.
This lifting of the 170 meters long flare boom weighing 1.584 tons took place in December last year.
It departed Bomesc yard in China on December 18 reaching Geoje about a week later. SHI completed loading the flare boom on December 28, according to a construction update by Eni.
To remind, SHI completed lifting of the 13th and the last 70.000 tons module onboard the FLNG producer in November last year.
Italy’s Eni expects FLNG sail-away in 2021 and gas production start-up in Mozambique in 2022.
The unit will be 432 metres long and 66 metres wide and weigh about 220,000 tons.
Moreover, the 3.4 mtpa FLNG will receive fuel from the Coral gas field in the Area 4 of the Rovuma Basin.
Eni Rovuma Basin operates the Coral Sul (South) project on behalf of the Area 4 partners.
These include Mozambique Rovuma Venture, a firm owned by Eni, ExxonMobil and CNPC, Galp, Kogas and Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos.
The project is based on six ultra-deepwater wells in the Coral field, at a water depth of around 2,000 meters.
Italian contractor Saipem recently resumed drilling operations at the filed offshore Mozambique following a halt in April 2020 because of the pandemic.
Eni discovered the field, that has about 16 Tcf of gas in place, back in May 2012.
