LNG engineer TechnipFMC informed that work on Eni’s Coral South floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) unit is progressing.
In a brief statement through its social media channels, TechnipFMC said that the first deck stacking operation for topsides modules of the Coral-Sul FLNG has been executed.
“The milestone was reached at our construction partner Samsung Heavy Industries’ shipyard in Geoje, South Korea, earlier this month,” the statement reads.
To remind, the unit is part of the Coral South project, which will put in production 450 billion cubic meters of gas from the giant Coral reservoir, Eni said in a statement on Monday.
The hull is expected to be launched in 2020, in line with the planned production startup of the Coral South project in 2022.
The Coral Sul FLNG facility will have a gas liquefaction capacity of 3.4 million tons per year when completed. The facility will be anchored at a water depth of around 2,000 meters by means of 20 mooring lines that weigh a combined 9,000 tons.
