Video: Coral FLNG gets last module

South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries has lifted the last topside module onboard Eni’s Coral Sul FLNG that will be used for a project offshore Mozambique.

This lifting of the 13th 70.000 tons module marks the end of the onshore-modules fabrication campaign configuring the entire gas treatment and liquefaction plant, Eni said on Wednesday.

Furthermore, the Italian firm still expects FLNG sail-away in 2021 and gas production start-up in Mozambique in 2022.

“This is a great achievement for Area 4 Partners, in middle of all struggles caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, and confirms our commitment to the successful development of the Coral South Project,” said Roberto Dall’Omo, general manager of Eni Rovuma Basin.

Samsung Heavy is also building the FLNG’S hull and the shipyard launched it in the beginning of January.

The unit will be 432 metres long and 66 metres wide and weigh about 220,000 tons.

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 South Project on behalf of the Area 4 partners.

These include Mozambique Rovuma Venture, a venture 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.

To remind, Eni discovered the field, that has about 16 Tcf of gas in place, back in May 2012.
