Smit Lamnalco Wins 10-Year FLNG Services Deal in Mozambique
Marine services company Smit Lamnalco has been awarded a 10-year contract with additional extension options by Coral FLNG to provide integrated marine services to the first Mozambique floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) terminal.
The development marks the first terminal services contract award for the Mozambique offshore LNG developments.
The contract value for Smit Lamnalco amounts to around USD 200 million and services will commence early 2022.
For the delivery of its services, the company will deploy three new 95 ton bollard pull tugs to provide escort, berthing and unberthing services to LNG carriers at the FLNG facility. A new offshore support vessel will be utilized to provide logistical and marine services support.
Coral FLNG is a consortium of ENI, ExxonMobil, CNPC, Kogas, Galp Energia and ENH. The FLNG terminal is located some 80 kilometers offshore Palma Bay and operates in a water depth of 2,000 meters.
