Air Products announced today 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 facility to be located in the Indian Ocean, offshore Mozambique, Africa.
The FLNG facility being built by TP JGC Coral France, an incorporated joint venture formed by TechnipFMC and JGC Corporation, along with Samsung Heavy Industries, will utilize Air Products' dual mixed refrigerant process. The liquefaction capacity will be 3.4 million tons per annum. The FLNG plant will be moored and operate on the surface above 6,500 feet of water in the Indian Ocean, in a natural gas field known as Area 4 of the Coral Field.
"Air Products is very pleased to be involved with a few more firsts in our work with the global LNG industry. The Coral South LNG Project is Air Products' first time providing our proprietary LNG technology in Mozambique, and it will also be the first deep-water FLNG project for Africa.”, said Dr. Samir J. Serhan , executive vice president at Air Products.
