FLNG: 24 Engineers Receive Technical Training in Italy for the Coral South Project

The Coral South FLNG Project, operated by the Italian oil company Eni, announced that 24 recently graduated Mozambican engineers left for Italy this May to take part in technical training at Eni Corporate University. This four-month training course is part of a wider two-year programme as part of the plan to develop local content and nationalise the Coral South FLNG Project, according to a statement from the company.

According to the statement, this is the second edition of the training programme that began in 2019, which in its first phase benefited 32 graduates who are now part of the company’s staff. ‘The 24 engineers were selected from 300 candidates from higher education institutions in Maputo and Pemba, through a rigorous process that assessed criteria such as academic excellence, resulting from cooperation with several Mozambican universities,’ the document reads.

The note explains that the training is divided into several phases, starting with an intensive English course in Maputo. The subsequent phase, in Italy, covers areas such as health and safety, maritime/naval, maintenance, technical and laboratory services. After this stage, the engineers take part in practical on-the-job training, preparing them to join the Maintenance, Production, Laboratory, Assets and Asset Integrity departments at the Coral Sul FLNG facility, located in the Rovuma Basin, Cabo Delgado province.

Elina Domingos Sambo, who has a degree in Chemical Engineering and is one of three women in the group, highlighted the importance of the programme. ‘I have a great responsibility and I will do everything to dignify the gender. The practical training will be the best part of this programme, as it will help me improve my skills and contribute to the development of my country,’ she said.

According to the information, the Coral South Project, operated by Eni on behalf of the Area 4 Partners, is the first to develop the vast gas resources discovered in the Rovuma Basin. ‘To date, Coral Sul has exported 58 shipments of LNG and 9 of condensate,’ the statement said.

Coral FLNG SA, a special purpose vehicle established in Mozambique by the Area 4 Partners – Eni, ExxonMobil, CNPC, Galp, KOGAS and Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos E.P. – is responsible for managing the Coral Sul-FLNG infrastructure.

The press release concludes that with this second edition of the training programme, ‘Eni reaffirms its commitment to the development of local content and the training of Mozambican staff, thus strengthening cooperation between Mozambique and Italy’.
