Air Products has signed up to supply two LNG heat exchangers to the Total-led Mozambique LNG venture.
The company said its facility in Port Manatee, Florida, would manufacture the equipment, which would then be shipped to the Afungi Peninsula, in Mozambique’s northern Cabo Delgado Province.
Air Products has signed the deal with the contractor, CCS JV, a joint venture made up of Chiyoda, McDermott and Saipem. The two proprietary coil wound main cryogenic heat exchangers (MCHE) would go to supporting the two trains at the site, which will produce 12.88 million tonnes per year of LNG.
“Our LNG heat exchangers are in operation around the world, and when this project goes onstream we can add Mozambique to the growing list of countries where we play a key role in meeting the world’s clean energy needs through the production of LNG,” said Air Products’ executive vice president Samir Serhan. “Our LNG business is encouraged by the activity in the market and customers should know that Air Products’ expanded manufacturing facility is capable of addressing their LNG technological needs anywhere in the world.”
CCS JV’s chairman Roberto Uberti said the contractor was working to build “one of the most efficient facilities in the LNG space. We are carefully selecting reliable and experienced technology providers and under this perspective the benefits of Air Products involvement are clearly consistent.”
Gas for the two trains will come from the offshore Golfinho/Atum fields. The Mozambique LNG project is expected to start producing in 2024.
Worley won two master service agreements (MSAs) from Total for work on the Mozambique LNG project in February.
Air Products is also working on the Coral Sul floating LNG (FLNG) project, which is expected to begin producing offshore Mozambique in 2022. The company has agreed to supply a cryogenic heat exchanger to the FLNG project, in addition to a medium and high purity nitrogen package, under contracts awarded in 2017.
