Expro Group Holdings NV has secured a long-term production solutions contract with Eni Congo SA, an Eni SpA subsidiary, for an LNG pre-treatment facility in Congo.
Expro’s 10-year contract, first disclosed on the company’s third-quarter 2022 conference call, is expected to generated more than $300 million for the company, Expro said in a Jan. 25 news release.
Expro will design, construct, operate and maintain a fast-track onshore LNG pre-treatment facility (OPT), part of the Marine XII development offshore Congo. The facility will be built near to the Litchendjili gas plant, which supplies gas to the adjacent Centrale Electrique du Congo (CEC) Pointe-Noire Power Plant. The facility will significantly increase the production of LNG from the West Africa area.
The facility is designed to allow incremental gas production for low carbon electricity generation. It will link to Eni Congo’s offshore floating LNG operations, supporting both the local energy market and increased global demands for LNG to support secure energy supplies.
The OPT facility is designed to process approximately 80 MMcf/d.
Colin Mackenzie, Expro’s regional vice president for Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa, said the company’s “expertise in designing, engineering, delivering, building, operating and maintaining modular production plants on a fast-track basis is a recognized market differentiator and will further strengthen our presence in the region.”
