Three steel tube umbilicals, to be delivered by Aker Solutions, will connect the Coral South FLNG facility to the field's subsea production system. These umbilicals will be more than 19km in length.

Manufactured at Aker Solutions' plant in Moss, Norway, delivery of the umbilicals and associated equipment is expected to take place at the end of 2019. The financial value of the contract has not been disclosed by the parties.

Gas was discovered in the Coral Sea development area in 2012 and the field is estimated to contain around 450bcm of natural gas.
