Technip Energies: Eni’s Coral FLNG on track to leave yard by year-end

French engineer Technip Energies says Eni’s Coral Sul FLNG is on track to leave Samsung Heavy Industries’ Geoje yard in South Korea by the end of this year.

Technip Energies confirmed this in its first-half report released last week.

“Coral FLNG for Eni is progressing with advances at the yard as well as offshore Mozambique in preparation for the deployment of the mooring system,” Arnaud Pieton, CEO of Technip Energies, told analysts during a conference call on Thursday.

“As recently confirmed by our customer, project start-up is on track for 2022,” Pieton said.

The TJS consortium, consisting of Technip Energies, JGC Corp., and Samsung, is building the floating LNG producer for Italy’s Eni.

To remind, the South Korean yard lifted the flare boom in December but after this, the project also completed installing the turret mooring system.

The unit is 432 metres long and 66 metres wide and weighs 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.

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