Eni has selected Aker Solutions to deliver three umbilicals and associated equipment for the Coral South project offshore Mozambique’s first offshore field development, Eni said in a news release.
The value of the contract was not disclosed.
The work scope includes three steel tube umbilicals, totaling more than 19 km (12 miles) in length, which will connect the Coral South floating LNG facility to the field’s subsea production system. The umbilicals will be manufactured at Aker Solutions’ plant in Moss, Norway, and are scheduled for delivery at year-end 2019.
The Coral South development was discovered in 2012 and is the first energy project offshore Mozambique. The field is estimated to contain about 450 Bcm (16 Tcf) of natural gas.
