Air Products’ technology selected for Mozambique’s first onshore LNG project

refinery 109023 640Technology company Air Products has signed an agreement to provide its proprietary LNG technology, equipment and related process license and advisory services to the Mozambique LNG Project

Air Products’ LNG manufacturing facility in Port Manatee, Florida will manufacture two LNG heat exchangers, which will then be shipped to the project site on the Afungi Peninsula in Cabo Delgado, Mozambique. This LNG production facility will be the first onshore LNG Project in the Republic of Mozambique in Southeast Africa.

Under the agreement with EPC contractor CCS JV, a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of Italy and formed by a joint venture comprised of affiliates of Saipem, McDermott and Chiyoda, Air Products will provide two of its proprietary coil wound main cryogenic heat exchangers (MCHE) for the project.

The MCHEs will operate at the site as part of two separate LNG production trains designed to produce approximately 13mn tonnes per year LNG in total from the Golfinho/Atum natural gas fields in Mozambique.

Samir Serhan, executive vice-president at Air Products, said, “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.”

Roberto Uberti, CCS JV Chairman, commented, “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 with the Coral South floating LNG (FLNG) project, the first offshore FLNG project in Mozambique, which is expected to begin production in 2022.
