MODEC wins Coral South FLNG mooring system contract

MODEC said its unit, SOFEC has been awarded the turret mooring system supply contract for the Eni-led Coral South FLNG project by the joint venture consisting of TechnipFMC and JGC Corporation. 

The contract is for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a major internal turret mooring system for the Coral South floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG), MODEC said.

The FLNG facility will be designed to produce 3.4 mtpa of liquefied natural gas and will be moored in 2,000 meters of water depth in Area 4, offshore Mozambique.

The turret allows the FLNG facility to continually rotate into prevailing weather without production interruptions.

SOFEC will be responsible for all EPC activities related to the internal turret mooring system and its ancillary components. SOFEC will also assist in turret integration and offshore commissioning activities in Mozambique.

Project delivery includes both the turret mooring systems (mooring legs, mechanical connectors and anchor piles) and fluid transfer systems (piping, swivels, safety and controls).
