A new date for a planned first export cargo from Eni’s newly installed Coral-Sul FLNG production unit off Mozambique has been pencilled in as the Italian energy company moves to meet a yard deadline to order a second LNG floater.

Those working with the Coral-Sul FLNG unit, which is monetising gas in the Coral South field in Area 4 off Mozambique, said preparations are now underway to export a first cargo on or around 14 October.
