Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE) has announced a second major contract for Eni East Africa’s (EEA) Coral South Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) development, offshore Mozambique.
BHGE will provide rotating equipment for the power and gas refrigeration processes of the new FLNG facility, which is a first of its kind ever built in Africa, for Africa. The order comprises four turbo-compression trains utilizing the aeroderivative PGT25+G4 gas turbine driving centrifugal compressors for mix refrigeration services and four turbo-generation units also driven by PGT25+G4 turbines.
Per an additional contract, BHGE will also supply boil-off gas (BOG) booster compressors for re-liquefication of evaporating gas out of the LNG storage tanks. The BOG compressors can operate at temperatures as low as -292° F (-180° C).
The turbo compressor trains and turbo-generation units will be manufactured at the BHGE Nuovo Pignone facility in Florence, Italy and assembled and tested in the Massa facility.
