The deal has been awarded by Total E&P Mozambique Area 1, a unit of the French energy giant.

The contract includes engineering, manufacturing, integration, automation and testing of the onshore subsea equipment related to the development of the Golfinho assets.

Offshore Area 1 is located within the Rovuma Basin, about 40 kilometers offshore northern Mozambique.

The area hosts the Golfinho/Atum gas fields which will feed the Mozambique LNG plant.

Under the deal, W-Industries which is a unit of Singapore-based tech group CSE Global will provide two onshore subsea support equipment modules.

The deal also includes the provision of subsea production hydraulic power unit, MEG and methanol injection system, and a chemical injection skid.

W-Industries did not reveal the value of the deal saying only the contract was “significant”.

Mozambique LNG was sanctioned in June 2019 by Anadarko and its co-venturers in Area 1.

Total acquired Anadarko’s 26.5 percent interest in the LNG project in September last year for $3.9 billion.

The project will initially consist of two LNG trains in Cabo Delgado with a capacity of 12.88 million tonnes per year to support the development of the Golfinho/Atum fields.

Area 1 contains more than 60 trillion cubic feet of gas resources, of which 18 Tcf will be developed with the first two trains.

Total said previously that it expected production to begin by 2024.
