Eni Congo SA, an Eni SpA subsidiary, has let a production solutions contract to Expro Group Holdings NV for an LNG pre-treatment plant in the Republic of Congo.
The 10-year contract is expected to generate more than $300 million of revenue for Expro, the service provider said in a release Jan. 25.
Expro will design, construct, operate, and maintain an 80 MMcfd onshore LNG pre-treatment plant (OPT), part of the Marine XII development offshore Congo. The plant will be built near the Litchendjili gas plant which supplies gas to the adjacent Centrale Electrique du Congo (CEC) Pointe-Noire power plant and will enable increased production of LNG from the West Africa area.
The plant is designed to allow incremental gas production for low carbon electricity generation. It will link to Eni Congo’s offshore floating LNG (FLNG) operations. In December Eni signed a contract with Wison Heavy Industry for construction and installation of a 2.4 million tonne/year (tpy) FLNG unit to be deployed offshore the Republic of Congo (OGJ Online, Dec. 8, 2022). The vessel will be the second FLNG to be deployed in area, the first being Tango FLNG (0.6 million tpy capacity), with LNG production expected to begin this year (OGJ Online, Aug. 8, 2022).
