The South Korean government will shortly send a patrol vessel to Mozambique to protect the Coral Sul floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) platform in the Rovuma basin.

The news was announced in Nairobi by Byoung-Gug Choung, the special envoy of South Korea’s President Yoon Suk-yeol, after a meeting with President Filipe Nyusi on the side-lines of the inauguration of President-elect William Ruto of Kenya.

Speaking to Mozambican journalists, Byoung-Gug Choung explained that the patrol vessel would also facilitate the maintenance and the operation of the FLNG platform.

The floating platform, manufactured in South Korea and which arrived in Mozambique in January this year, is the most modern in the world in terms of liquefied natural gas production. It is also the first floating LNG facility ever deployed in the deep waters off the African continent, and the only one in the world to extract gas from such a depth.

The Coral Sul FLNG is 432 metres long and 66 metres wide, weighs around 220,000 tons, and has the capacity to accommodate up to 350 people in its eight-story living-quarter module. The facility is located at a water-depth of around 2,000 metres, and is kept in position by 20 mooring lines weighing a total of 9,000 tons.

Coral Sul FLNG has a gas liquefaction capacity of 3.4 million tons per year (MTPA), and will put in production 450 billion cubic metres of gas from the giant Coral reservoir, located in the offshore Rovuma Basin.
