FLNG Ship Achieves LNG Production of More Than 3.4 Million Tonnes Per Year

Air Products – an American international company whose main business is the sale of gases and chemicals for industrial use – has announced that its technology and equipment for processing Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) with a double mixture of refrigerants has passed the performance test, achieving production of over 3.4 million tonnes per year.

According to an article published on Tuesday 7 May by the LNG Prime news portal, the company claims that the efficiency of the AP-DMR process, combined with the use of aeroderivative machinery, translates into a lower carbon intensity than all other LNG processes in floating service.

The organisation explains that the company’s involvement with the FLNG project began in 2013 with conceptual work, resulting in the selection of the AP-DMR LNG process technology and equipment.

‘This included the supply of two main cryogenic heat exchangers (CWHEs), one for pre-cooling and the other for liquefaction within the plant.’

The prime cryogenic heat exchangers for the Coral South project were manufactured at Air Products’ facilities in Port Manatee, Florida, and the company provided specialised technical consultancy services for installation, commissioning, start-up and performance testing.

In November 2022, the Coral Sul FLNG transported its first cargo of LNG, positioning Mozambique as one of the Liquefied Natural Gas producing countries.

The TJS consortium, made up of Technip Energies, JGC and Samsung Heavy, built the unit for the Eni oil company which, in turn, is the first floating LNG facility to be deployed in the deep waters of the African continent.

LNG Prime reveals that in addition to this unit, the partners are now working on the second FLNG project offshore Mozambique, called Coral Norte, which would be a replica of Coral Sul.

Earlier this year, Technip Energies’ head of engineering, Arnaud Pieton, said that Eni’s second floating LNG production project in Mozambique has the potential for a final investment decision in 2024.
