A consortium led by TechnipFMC will build a floating LNG vessel for Italian firm Eni’s project off Mozambique.
The TJS Consortium, which also includes JGC and Samsung Heavy Industries, said it would build and install the Coral South FLNG facility and its associated risers and subsea flowlines system.
The FLNG facility will be designed to produce close to 3.4 Mtpa of liquefied natural gas and will be moored in 2,000 meters of water depth in the Area 4, offshore Mozambique.
TechnipFMC chief executive Doug Pferdehirt said: “We are honored to be the leader of the execution of this prestigious contract awarded by Eni and its partners to the TJS consortium.
“Combining TechnipFMC’s unique capabilities in both FLNG and Subsea, we have been able to propose to our client an optimum combination, demonstrating the strength of our integrated offerings.”
