Sofec Lands Coral South FLNG Turret Moorings Work

Sofec, a Modec Group company, has been awarded the turret mooring system supply contract for the Coral South Project by the joint venture consisting of TechnipFMC and JGC Corporation.

This is for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of 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 liquefied natural gas and will be moored in 2,000 meters 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 (mooring legs, mechanical connectors and anchor piles) and fluid transfer systems (piping, swivels, safety and controls).

The Coral South FLNG Turret represents SOFEC’s 4th single point mooring system for LNG related business and using SOFEC’s high integrity pressure protection systems (HIPPS) technology.

Rick Hall, SOFEC’s CEO, stated: “We are honored to be awarded this contract for the Coral FLNG Turret Moorings. This project will continue to allow SOFEC to showcase our unique capabilities in moorings and fluid transfer systems. We look forward to working with the joint venture partners to make this a safe and successful project.”
