A unit of Singapore’s Keppel Offshore & Marine has secured a contract to work on Eni’s Coral South floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility to be located offshore Mozambique.

Keppel Shipyard won a contract from mooring specialist SOFEC for the fabrication of a turret mooring system for the newbuild FLNG vessel bound for the Coral South project, Keppel Offshore & Marine said on Monday.

Fabrication is scheduled to commence in the first quarter next with delivery of the turret components expected in the first quarter of 2020, according to Keppel.

Besides this contract, Keppel has secured hull carry over work from Brazil’s Petrobras for the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit P-69.

The combined value of the two contracts is around S$130 million ($96.2m).

Worth mentioning, Italy’s Eni announced last week it closed $4.7 billion financing for its Coral South FLNG project.

Coral South FLNG was sanctioned earlier this year by the Area 4 partners for the development of the considerable gas resources discovered in the Rovuma Basin offshore Mozambique.

The project targets the production and monetization of the gas contained in the southern part of the Coral gas reservoir, by means of a floating LNG plant with a capacity of 3.4 mtpa.

Eni is the operator of Area 4, holding a 50 percent indirect interest through its participation in Eni East Africa (EEA).

The remaining interests in Area 4 are held by CNODC (20 percent), Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos E.P. (ENH, 10 percent), Kogas (10 percent) and Galp Energia (10 percent).

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
