The Energy of Coral

The history of the Coral South project, which added Mozambique to the list of LNG-producing countries and opened up new routes for Europe's energy security.

From the discovery of giant fields off the coast of Mozambique to the production of LNG thanks to the floating natural gas processing and liquefaction plant, Coral Sul FLNG, the history of a global project: “The Energy of Coral” tells the history of a global project.

The photo book recounts the discovery of the Coral field, the development of the Coral South project (the first step towards the development of the 85 trillion cubic feet of gas discovered by Eni in Area 4 of the Rovuma Basin), and the building of the Coral Sul, the first large-scale FLNG vessel located in ultra-deep waters, anchored at a depth of about 2,000 metres with a gas liquefaction capacity of 3.4 million tonnes per year.

The project led Mozambique to become one of the world's major LNG producers and represents an important contribution to the security and diversification of supplies to Europe, in the direction of a just energy transition.

The book, available in English and Portuguese, illustrates the challenges and choices of the exploration and development teams, highlighting Eni's excellence in exploration, development and management of complex projects, and the strong partnership with local stakeholders and peers involved. It also describes the contribution of young Mozambicans to Coral South, and the commitment to sustainability that underpins and follows the entire project.

The first-person accounts, the extensive and rich body of images and video footage convey the magnitude of Coral South and the extraordinary expertise that Eni and its partners, ExxonMobil, CNPC, Galp, KOGAS and Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos E.P, together with Coral FLNG, contributed to make it happen.
