TechnipFMC, together with JGC Corporation and Samsung Heavy Industries, all partners in the TJS Consortium, has been awarded a $2.5 billion contract for the Coral South FLNG project offshore Mozambique.

The contract covers the engineering, procurement, construction, installation, commissioning and start-up of the Coral South FLNG facility and its associated risers and subsea flowlines system, as well as the installation of the umbilicals and subsea equipment.

The floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility will be designed to produce close to 3.4 Mtpa of LNG and will be moored in 2,000 meters of water depth in the Area 4, offshore Mozambique.

The contract has been awarded to the consortium by Coral FLNG SA, a special purpose entity incorporated in Mozambique that owns the FLNG facility. The unit is jointly owned by Eni Mozambique LNG Holding B.V., CNODC Mozambique B.V., ENH FLNG UM, S.A, Galp Energia Rovuma B.V and KG Mozambique Ltd.

Eni and its partners launched the Coral FLNG project on May 1. It is expected to be East Africa’s first floating LNG production project.
