LONDON and HOUSTON – Baker Hughes, a GE company has secured further contracts for Eni East Africa’s Coral South FLNG development offshore Mozambique.
The company will provide rotating equipment for the power and gas refrigeration process of theFLNG vessel.
This will comprise four turbo-compression trains for mix refrigeration services, using the company’s aeroderivative gas turbine (model PGT25+G4) technology, and four Turbo-generation units, also driven by aeroderivative gas turbines (model PGT25+G4).
All components will be manufactured at BHGE’s Nuovo Pignone complex in Florence, Italy, with the train assembled and tested in the Massa plant.
The turbo-generation units will feature electric generators provided by the GE Power Conversion business.
In addition, BHGE will supply boil-off gas (BOG) and booster compressors capable of operating at -180°C (-292°F) to re-liquefy excessive BOG evaporating from the LNG storage tanks.
The contracts follow anaward in June of this year for the supply of seven xmas trees, three two-slot manifolds with integrated distribution units, MB rigid jumpers, seven subsea wellheads with spare components, a topsides control system to be installed on the Coral South FLNG facility, IWOCS and landing strings, tools, spares and technical assistance for installation, commissioning and start-up.
Coral South FLNG project, the first phase of EEA’s wider plan of development for its gas discoveries made in the offshore Rovuma Basin Area 4, will involve installation of an FLNG vessel with a capacity of around 3.4 MMt/yr, with production supplied through six subsea wells.
The facilities should deliver around 5 tcf over 25 years starting in mid-2022.
