Air Products has announced an agreement with TP JGC Coral France for the supply of its proprietary cryogenic coil wound heat exchanger technology and the liquefaction process license for a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility to be located in the, offshore Mozambique.
The FLNG facility is being built by TP JGC Coral France, an incorporated joint venture formed by TechnipFMC and JGC Corp., along with Samsung Heavy Industries. It will utilise Air Products' dual mixed refrigerant process. The liquefaction capacity will be 3.4 million tpy. The FLNG plant will be moored and operate on the surface above 6500 ft of water in a natural gas field known as Area 4 of the Coral Field.
“The Coral South LNG Project is Air Products' first time providing our proprietary LNG technology in Mozambique, and it will also be the first deepwater FLNG project for Africa. We believe our involvement with other FLNG efforts in different parts of the world gives us unparalleled experience in the floating LNG market,” said Dr Samir J. Serhan, Executive Vice President at Air Products.
Air Products has manufactured LNG heat exchangers for over 45 years. Typically, an LNG heat exchanger can be as large as over 15 ft in diameter and 180 ft long. A finished unit can weigh as much as 500 t.
In support of the LNG industry, the company provides process technology and key equipment for the natural gas liquefaction process for large export plants, small and mid-sized LNG plants, floating LNG plants and LNG peak shavers. Downstream, the company provides membrane nitrogen generators for LNG carriers, and land-based membrane and cryogenic nitrogen systems for LNG import terminals and base-load LNG plants.
