Air Products has confirmed a supply agreement with TP JGC Coral France for the supply of its medium and high purity nitrogen (N2) package for a floating liquefied natural gas (FNLG) facility to be located in the Indian Ocean, offshore Mozambique, Africa.
This represents the company’s second supply contract with TP JGC Coral France for this project. Earlier this year, Air Products announced an agreement to supply its proprietary cryogenic coil wound heat exchanger technology and liquefaction process license for the facility.
The FLNG facility being built by TP JGC Coral France, an incorporated joint venture formed by TechnipFMC and JGC Corporation, along with Samsung Heavy Industries, will utilise Air Products’ advanced PRISM® membrane separators to produce both medium and high-purity N2. The combined N2 production will exceed 100,000 Nm3/day. The FLNG plant will be moored and operate on the surface above 6,500 feet of water in the Indian Ocean, in a natural gas field known as Area 4 of the Coral Field.
“Air Products is very pleased to again be selected as a key supplier to the Coral FLNG project,” said Charles Page, Director of Air Products PRISM Membranes. “Our N2 Package, which has been designed in accordance with the consortium’s exacting requirements, leverages Air Products’ unparalleled experience for supplying similar equipment for demanding offshore applications.”
