US Firm Gets Subsea Contract at Mozambique LNG
Houston-based engineering firm W-Industries has landed a "significant" subsea contract at the Total-led Mozambique LNG project, it reported on May 4.
Mozambique LNG is targeting 75 trillion ft3 of gas at the Golfinho and Atum gas fields in the Rovuma basin off the Mozambique coast. The $20bn project is due on steam by 2024, and will produce 13mn mt/yr of LNG at full capacity.
The contract covers engineering, manufacturing, integration, automation and testing of onshore subsea equipment for the Golfinho gas field. It will provide two onshore subsea support equipment modules with integrated electrical and instrumentation buildings, a subsea production hydraulic power unit, mono-ethylene glycol and methanol injection systems and an independent chemical injection skid with a fully integrated local process control and safety system.
"Through the combination of our core products, advanced engineering capabilities and process automation expertise, we are able to deliver a fully integrated, turn-key module in support of the Mozambique LNG project," W-Industries said.
In March, Pennsylvania-based Air Products received a contract from Italy's Saipem, the US' McDermott and Japan's Chiyoda, which are serving as Mozambique LNG's lead contractors, for the supply of cryogenic heat exchangers.
Mozambique LNG has become a hotspot for Covid-19 cases in the east African country, but work at the site is so far running on schedule, according to Total.
