Air Products Inks Mozambique LNG Contract

U.S. based Air Products Technology has signed a deal to supply natural gas technology and equipment to the Mozambique Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Project.

According to the agreement with engineering, procurement and construction contractor CCS JV – which is comprised of units of Saipem, McDermott and Chiyoda – Air Products will deliver two proprietary coil wound main cryogenic heat exchangers (MCHE) to the Afungi Peninsula-based project site in Cabo Delgado, Mozambique.

“Our LNG heat exchangers are in operation around the world, and when this project goes onstream we can add Mozambique to the growing list of countries where we play a key role in meeting the world’s clean energy needs through the production of LNG,” Air Products Executive Vice President Samir Serhan in a written statement.

The MCHEs will operate at the site as part of the two distinct LNG production trains that will generate about 13 million tons of LNG per year from the Golfinho/Atum natural gas fields in Mozambique.

The LNG production plant is expected to be the first onshore LNG project in the country.
