Air Products nitrogen package for Coral FLNG
Air Products will supply its Medium and High Purity Nitrogen Package for Eni’s $4.7 billion Coral FLNG development offshore Mozambique.
This will be Air Products’ second contract for the Coral FLNG project awarded by TP JGC Coral France, a joint venture formed by TechnipFMC and JGC Corporation, the partners in a consortium with Samsung Heavy Industries that will build and deliver Coral South’s FLNG facility.
Earlier this year, Air Products announced an agreement to supply its cryogenic coil wound heat exchanger technology and liquefaction process license for the Coral FLNGfacility.
Under the latest order, the Coral FLNG unit will utilize Air Products’ PRISM® Membrane Separators to produce both medium- and high-purity nitrogen. The combined nitrogen production will exceed 100,000 Nm3/day. The FLNG plant will be moored and operate on the surface above 6,500 feet of water in the Indian Ocean, in a natural gas field known as Area 4 of the Coral Field.
“Air Products is very pleased to again be selected as a key supplier to the Coral FLNG project,” said Charles Page, director of Air Products PRISM Membranes. “Our Nitrogen Package, which has been designed in accordance with the consortium’s exacting requirements, leverages Air Products’ unparalleled experience for supplying similar equipment for demanding offshore applications.”
To remind, the final investment decision for the Coral South FLNG Project, the first development of the considerable gas resources discovered by Eni in Area 4, was reached in May 2017, just three years after the drilling of the final exploration well. Earlier in December, Eni achieved financial close for a total amount of around $4.7 billion for the Coral South FLNG multi-sourced project financing.
