Air Products’ LNG manufacturing facility in Port Manatee, Florida, will be responsible for the manufacture of two LNG heat exchangers. Upon completion, these will then be shipped to the project site on the Afungi Peninsula in Cabo Delgado, Mozambique. Once complete, the project will be the country’s first onshore LNG project.
Under the terms of the agreement with CCS JV – the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor – Air Products will provide two of its proprietary coil wound main cryogenic heat exchangers (MCHE). CCS JV is a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of Italy and formed by a joint venture (JV) consisting of affiliates of Saipem, McDermott and Chiyoda. The MCHEs will operate at the site as part of two separate LNG production trains designed to produce approximately 13 million tpy of LNG in total from the Golfinho/Atum natural gas fields in Mozambique.
Dr. Samir Serhan, executive vice president at Air Products, said: “Air Products’ expertise in LNG is well regarded by the industry and we are pleased to have been selected for this project. Our LNG heat exchangers are in operation around the world, and when this project goes onstream we can add Mozambique to the growing list of countries where we play a key role in meeting the world’s clean energy needs through the production of LNG. Our LNG business is encouraged by the activity in the market and customers should know that Air Products’ expanded manufacturing facility is capable of addressing their LNG technological needs anywhere in the world.”
Roberto Uberti, CCS JV Chairman, added: “We have been tasked with building the first onshore LNG export facility in Mozambique and one of the most efficient facilities in the LNG space. We are carefully selecting reliable and experienced technology providers and under this perspective the benefits of Air Products involvement are clearly consistent.”
Air Products is also involved in the Coral South floating LNG (FLNG) project, the first offshore FLNG project in Mozambique. This is expected to commence production in 2022.
