SHI holds naming ceremony for Eni’s Coral Sul FLNG

South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries has held a naming and sail away ceremony for Eni’s Coral Sul FLNG at its Geoje yard.

The ceremony took place on Monday and the vessel is expected to depart the yard on Tuesday in order to start work offshore Mozambique in the second half of next year.

LNG Prime reported on this development last week saying that the FLNG was ready to leave Geoje.

According to ALP Maritime, its ALP Sweeper, ALP Keeper, and ALP Striker would tow the FLNG to Mozambique.

French engineer Technip Energies said earlier this year that the Coral Sul FLNG would leave SHI’s Geoje yard by the end of this year.

The TJS consortium, consisting of Technip Energies, JGC Corp, and Samsung, built the floating LNG producer for Eni.

The unit is 432 meters long and 66 meters wide and weighs about 220,000 tons.

Following arrival offshore Mozambique, the FLNG will receive fuel from the Coral gas field in the Area 4 of the Rovuma Basin. BP will buy all of the LNG produced at the unit as part of a long-term deal.

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.

Eni discovered the field back in May 2012 and the field has about 16 Tcf of gas in place.
