Siemens Energy will supply four centrifugal compressors and six SGT-800 industrial gas turbines for the Mozambique LNG project in the Cabo Delgado province on Africa’s east coast. The project, led by TOTAL E&P Mozambique Area 1, comprises the Golfinho-Atum gas field development in the offshore Area 1 Block of the deepwater Rovuma Basin and the construction of a 12.88-MTPA onshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility on the Cabo Delgado coast of Mozambique.
The compressors will be used for boil-off gas service. The gas turbines will provide on-site power generation.
“Mozambique LNG is the country’s first onshore LNG development project and will play a key role in meeting the increasing demand for energy in the Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Indian sub-continent markets,” said Thorbjoern Fors, Executive Vice President for Siemens Energy Industrial Applications. “We look forward to helping Total drive toward the lowest possible plant emissions profile and contributing to its goal of delivering clean, reliable energy to customers across the globe.”
The gas turbines are slated for delivery in the second half of 2021 and the first half of 2022. The delivery of the compressors is scheduled for 2021.
The Area 1 Mozambique LNG facility will consist of two liquefaction trains with a combined nameplate capacity of 12.88 Mtpa in the initial phase. It will also house gas pre-treatment facilities and full-containment LNG storage tanks. The LNG production capacity of the facility is proposed to be further expanded up to 50 Mtpa in future.
The plant will receive feed gas supply from the Golfinho-Atum gas field through pipeline and produce LNG for export to the Asian and European markets, as well as for domestic consumption in Mozambique.
Other support facilities for the LNG plant will include materials offloading facility and an LNG marine terminal capable of accommodating large LNG carriers, which will also be shared with upcoming Area 4 LNG projects.
