UK-based pumps and associated equipment manufacturer, Amarinth secured orders totaling $750,000 for pumps for Eni’s Coral South FLNG development off Mozambique.
The Coral field contains approximately 450 billion cubic meters of gas, and a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility vessel will be used to produce, liquefy and store the natural gas at sea, Amarynth notes.
The company has secured two orders, through its Malaysia office. The first order which was required on a 28-week delivery, was for an API 610 OH2 pump with Plan 53B seal support system for installation on a de-sanding package.
This was quickly followed by a larger order for eight API 610 OH2 bespoke pumps with Plan 53B support systems. The design requirement for these pumps called for a 600lb flange rating on the discharge and suction nozzles, double the normal API 610 loading.
Amarinth said these pumps will be used in hazardous areas and so had to be fully IEC/EX compliant on all electrical items and, like the first pump, were also required on a tight 28-week deadline.
The Coral South FLNG unit will be operating at a depth of 2,000 meters and is expected to produce around 3.4 million tonnes of LNG per year.
The FLNG will be about 430m long, 66m wide, and will weigh about 210,000 tons. It has a design life of 25 years.
