Discovered in May 2012, located over 2000 meters deep and about 80 kilometers off the Bay of Palma, in the northern province of Cabo Delgado, Coral South gas field is estimated to hold 16 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of recoverable gas.
Eni is the delegated operator for the Coral South FLNG project, the first project to monetize the world class gas resources discovered in Area 4, Mozambique. The Italian company has commissioned the construction of the floating liquefaction plant, designed to accommodate the storage facilities for all the substances that will be processed and produce, mainly Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and condensates.
With thirty years of experience in the Oil&Gas sector, Spina has contributed to the project as a specialist in the in-house production of custom cable trays to allow the laying of electrical cables throughout the plant and as a supplier of material and assistance for mechanical workshops. The use of cable trays has allowed, once the path had been defined, to easily fix them to tunnels and structures by means of shelves, profiles and accessories, ensuring an easy laying of the cables. The operation was rapid and allows the easy replacement or addition of conductors in a very short time, guaranteeing the full functionality of the system.
The advantage of relying on Spina for the supply of turnkey mechanical laboratories is not limited to the supply of equipment, instrumentation – such as lathe machines, milling machines, radial drilling machines, sheet rolling machines, hydraulic presses, shear machine and benchcutting machine – and technical documentation according to the specifications of the project, but it means obtaining the realization of the layout and the engineering assistance necessary for the development of the facility. The service offered by Spina included the electrical design and calculation of the instrumentation anchors for offshore application by specialized engineers and on-site supervision of the project during the commissioning & startup phase.
