RINA picked as Eni’s certification authority for Coral South FLNG in Mozambique


RINA Services has been selected as Eni’s certification authority for the company’s Coral South floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project in Mozambique. 

RINA will provide certification for the design and fabrication of subsea structures and equipment and to provide technological validation services for the FLNG unit.

The FLNG unit with a production capacity of 3.4 million tons per annum will be installed in the South Part of Area 4 offshore Mozambique in the deep waters of Rovuma basin, RINA said.

Discovered by Eni in 2012, the Coral natural gas field contains approximately 450 billion cubic meters (16 tcf) of gas. The first phase of the Coral field exploitation includes the development of five trillion cubic feet (5 tcf) of gas and the commencement of the production is expected by 2021.

RINA Services, besides being the certification authority for the design and fabrication of the riser and flowlines, the umbilicals and the subsea production system, has been contracted by Eni to provide technological validation of those technologies that Eni deems unproven and could represent major criticalities for their implementation.
