BHGE in Coral South deal

HOUSTON, August 30, 2017 – TechnipFMC and JGC Corporation have awarded GE’s Baker Hughes (BHGE) contracts for rotating equipment for the Coral South FLNG project offshore Mozambique, international media reported on Wednesday.


The deal, the value of which was not disclosed, covers four turbo-compression trains and four turbo-generation units, as well as boil-off gas and booster compressors.

“Coral South LNG is an enormously important development for Mozambique and the region – the first new-built FLNG facility to be installed in Africa and one of only a small number in the world today,” said Rod Christie, BHGE’s president and CEO of turbomachinery and process solutions, in a statement. “These awards further underline BHGE’s position as a fullstream provider of smart, cost-effective advanced technology and solutions to drive reliability, flexibility, efficiency and productivity for major energy developments, while building on our relationships with oil and gas operators and our technical expertise that has been a true differentiator in this project.”

Eni is the operator of the USD 12-billion Coral South project, while the USD 2.5-billion FLNG facility is to be built by a consortium between Samsung Heavy Industries, Technip and JGC. The project is reportedly slated to come on stream by mid-2022.
