MODEC said its subsidiary SOFEC has been awarded the turret mooring system supply contract for the Coral South Project by the joint venture consisting of TechnipFMC and JGC Corp.

This is for the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of a major internal turret mooring system for the Coral South floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG). The FLNG facility will be designed to produce 3.4 MTPA of LNG and will be moored in 2000m of water depth in the Area 4, offshore Mozambique.

The turret allows the FLNG facility to continually rotate into prevailing weather without production interruptions. SOFEC will be responsible for all EPC activities related to the internal turret mooring system and its ancillary components.

SOFEC will also assist in turret integration and offshore commissioning activities in Mozambique. Project delivery includes both the turret mooring systems and fluid transfer systems.

The Coral South FLNG turret represents SOFEC’s fourth single point mooring system for LNG related business and using SOFEC’s high integrity pressure protection systems (HIPPS) technology. SOFEC’s design enables a reduced pressure envelope through the swivel stack by efficiently locating the HIPPS on the geostationary part of the turret.

This results in increased operational safety on the FLNG vessel, thereby increasing safety for personnel. This technology also clears deck space on the vessel where real estate is at a premium.
