Air Products to provide MCHE for Mozambique LNG Project

23 March 2020

Air Products has signed an agreement to provide its proprietary LNG technology, equipment, and related process license and advisory services to the Mozambique LNG Project. Air Products’ LNG manufacturing facility in Port Manatee, Florida will manufacture two LNG heat exchangers, which will then be shipped to the project site on the Afungi Peninsula in Cabo Delgado, Mozambique. 

Under the agreement with EPC contractor CCS JV, a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of Italy and formed by a joint venture comprised of affiliates of Saipem, McDermott, and Chiyoda, Air Products will provide two of its proprietary coil wound main cryogenic heat exchangers (MCHE) for the Project. The MCHEs will operate at the site as part of two separate LNG production trains designed to produce approximately 13 million tonnes per year liquified natural gas in total from the Golfinho/Atum natural gas fields in Mozambique.

Air Products will build the MCHEs at its Port Manatee, Florida manufacturing facility.

Air Products is also involved with the Coral South floating LNG (FLNG) project, the first offshore FLNG project in Mozambique, which is expected to begin production in 2022.
