HOUSTONEni East Africa has contracted the KD consortium of KBR and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering for front-end engineering and design (FEED) for an FLNG facility.

This will serve the proposed ultra-deepwater Coral South gas development in the Rovuma basinoffshore Mozambique, 150 mi (241 km) northeast of Pemba and 30 mi (48 km) offshore Mozambique.

The KD partners will provide the FEED for the topsides, hull, and subsea equipment for theFLNG vessel. The topsides and turret are being designed in KBR’s Leatherhead office near London, and the hull and marine system are being engineered by DSME in Seoul, South Korea. 

The turret-moored double-hull floating vessel will house gas receiving, processing, liquefaction, and offloading facilities along with LNG and condensate storage.

The KBR-DSME consortium are one of three consortia competing for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation, and commissioning (EPCIC) contract to build the new floating LNG facility.

The main milestones for the combined FEED-EPCIC competition are:

1) FEED activities started in May 2014.

2) FEED completion date by end-April 2015.

3) EPCIC offer submission by end-May 2015.
