Eni SpA introduced the first hydrocarbons from the Coral South Field located offshore Mozambique to the Coral Sul FLNG vessel, positioning Mozambique to officially become an LNG-producing country.

As upstream delegated operator of Area 4 on behalf of its partners Exxon Mobil Corp., CNPC, GALP, KOGAS and ENH, the Italian oil and gas company revealed on June 18 that the Coral South Project had safely achieved the introduction of hydrocarbons to the Coral Sul FLNG from the Coral South reservoir.

Following the introduction of gas in the plant, Coral Sul FLNG will now be ready to achieve its first LNG cargo in the second half of 2022, adding Mozambique to the LNG-producing countries.
