Lloyd’s Register (LR), an engineering, technical and business services organization, has won a contract to support the development of Eni’s Coral South FLNG project in Mozambique.Coral South FLNG; Image: LRLR said on Monday that the scope of work includes covers design, procurement, certification, construction, integration, and commissioning, as well as providing classification services under a risk-based inspection regime when the floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) unit enters service in 2022.The Coral South field is being developed by Eni in Area Four of the Rovuma Basin, off the coast of Mozambique. The field contains approximately 450 billion cubic meters (16 TCF) of gas and the unit will be Africa’s first floating gas facility.The FLNG unit will be the world’s first ultra-deepwater FLNG, operating at a depth of 2,000 meters. It is expected to produce around 3.4 million tonnes of LNG per year. The FLNG will be about 430 meters long, 66 meters wide, and will weigh about 210,000 tonnes. It has a design life of 25 years.LR added that it was providing flexible, bespoke support to the project through a range of services. The organization has been involved in the project since 2014, and in 2015 awarded the first approval in principle for the design.Its primary role in the project is to ensure that the FLNG operates safely, is not going to impact the environment, that people working onboard the unit are safe and that it is designed, procured, and fabricated in accordance with the most recognized industry standards.The project is currently in a detailed engineering design phase, with the bulk of design work happening in Korea, France, and Japan. LR is required to deliver a number of design appraisal documents as part of this phase.All the equipment, systems, and machinery that make up the topside plant on the FLNG will be certified by LR.To do this, LR will be holding more than 500 contracts with equipment vendors directly and will be delivering services in all vendor locations. This will result in all the equipment arriving in Korea certified by LR to agreed codes and standards.Upon completion of construction, the FLNG will be towed from Korea to Mozambique and LR will attend the hook up of the mooring system and survey the commissioning of the topside plant on the station.Simon Turpin, LR’s overarching project manager on Coral South, said: “The fact that LR was chosen for this very large and complicated project underlines our expertise in FLNG and shows that we are prepared and able to work in new and developing areas, where our clients want us to be. This is the first step into Mozambique for a major class society and an investment in the future of the country.”
“We did the same against Liverpool, we didn’t start that well but we ended up coming into the game,” Ledley said. “They had a good start but from there I thought it was 50-50 and on another day we could have gone on and nicked it on the counter-attack. “It was a good point for us and that’s what we needed after beating Liverpool. “But everyone’s determined and works their socks off here – the back four, midfield, wingers and strikers. “Everyone in the team knows they’ve got to put a shift in or they’ll be off, so every week we need to go out there and perform.” Palace’s fightback means Swansea have now lost 13 points from winning positions this season but defender Neil Taylor insists that worrying trait has not damaged dressing-room morale. “This is football, it always has to go one way,” Taylor said. “This is a stat that people can talk about but this is the way it can go. “You just carry on, it’s not the fact of managing the game. “We’ve just scored early and we should have made it two or three, but we didn’t and that’s it.” Swansea are at home again on Tuesday night when they entertain a Queens Park Rangers side who climbed off the bottom of the league on Saturday with a 3-2 victory over Leicester. “If we play well and win then this result is forgotten about,” Taylor said. “It won’t be an easy game but it’s a home game and hopefully we can go one better than this one. “Our play in the first half was unbelievable and if we’d finished a couple of those chances we would have been out of sight. “We need to capitalise on our chances because at 1-0 games are never finished and you have to try and get another one.” Socceroos skipper Jedinak paid his own personal tribute to compatriot Hughes before Palace’s 1-1 draw at Swansea on Saturday when he carried out a cricket bat, which he placed along with a ball and a pair of caps on the touchline. Hughes, 25, died on Thursday after being struck in the neck by a ball while batting for South Australia in a Sheffield Shield game in Sydney. Joe Ledley hailed the courage of his Crystal Palace captain Mile Jedinak following the death of Australian Test batsman Phillip Hughes. Press Association Jedinak made the poignant pre-match tribute and then scored from the penalty spot – his fifth goal in eight games – as Palace fought back to earn a prized Barclays Premier League point at the Liberty Stadium. “Everyone in Australia is devastated by what happened, especially Mile being the captain of the Australia football team,” said Jedinak’s midfield colleague Ledley. “That goal obviously meant a lot to Mile and we’re all behind him. “It’s been a difficult time for him but to go out there and play like he has done is fantastic. “He’s determined as ever and it didn’t affect his performance at all. “He’s done exactly the same in training because he’s a strong guy and personality and he’s been strong all week.” Palace endured a torrid opening spell when Swansea’s superiority was complete and finally reflected on the scoreline after 15 minutes when Wilfried Bony netted his sixth goal in seven Premier League games with a sharp shot on the turn. But Palace levelled 10 minutes later when Jonjo Shelvey’s clumsy challenge on Marouane Chamakh allowed Jedinak to score from the spot and Neil Warnock’s side grew into the game after that.
