Operations expected to start in the second half of 2022

As LNG Prime recently reported, Eni’s floating LNG producer, Coral Sul FLNG, arrived in Mozambique following a long journey from South Korea.

The 3.4 mtpa unit which weighs about 220,000 tons left Samsung Heavy Industries’ Geoje yard in South Korea under tow on November 16.

ALP Maritime’s three vessels towed the 432 meters long and 66 meters wide FLNG to Mozambique.

Following approvals and inspections, the installation campaign will begin, including mooring and hook-up operations at a water depth of around 2,000 meters.

The FLNG will receive fuel from the Coral gas field in the Area 4 of the Rovuma basin. Eni discovered Coral back in May 2012 while the field has about 16 Tcf of gas in place.

Also, BP will buy all of the LNG produced at the unit as part of a long-term deal.

Italy’s Eni previously said it would launch production in the second half of 2022.

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.
