Wison starts construction of new FLNG project for Eni in Congo

Wison Offshore & Marine held yesterday its 1st Cutting Ceremony for a new floating LNG unit it is constructing for Eni in the Republic of Congo. The ceremony took place at the Nantong yard, where Wison (Nantong) Heavy Industry Co., Ltd. will be constructing the 2.4 mtpa unit.

The project is expected to be commissioned in 2025 on Eni’s shallow water Marine XII Block offshore Congo-Brazzaville. It is part of Eni’s phased gas valorisation plan to develop and monetise the gas reserves on the license.

Phase 1 relies on the 0.6 mtpa Tango FLNG which Eni acquired from Exmar in 2022 and where first production is expected in H2 2023 to monetise available gas from the Litchendjili et Néné-Banga fields.

Once both projects are commissioned, the block will have an LNG export capacity of 3 mtpa, or 4.5 Bcm/year.
