New piece in Italian power safety. Eni has began the introduction of fuel on the Tango Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) plant moored in Congolese waters. The group declares this, specifying that «the introduction of fuel on the plant takes place in a file time of simply twelve months from the ultimate funding resolution. This is a basic milestone of the Congo LNG challenge characterised by the adoption of latest applied sciences and synergy with present fuel manufacturing property.” Following the completion of the commissioning phases, Tango Flng will produce the first load of LNG by the first quarter of 2024, thus adding the Republic of Congo to the LNG producing countries.

One billion cubic meters

The Tango FLNG, with a liquefaction capacity of approximately 1 billion cubic meters of gas per year (Bcma), was anchored next to the Floating Storage Unit (FSU) Excalibur, using an innovative configuration called “split mooring”, implemented to the first time in a floating LNG terminal, Eni states again in the note. The Congo LNG project will exploit the gas resources of the Marine XII permit and will achieve approximately 4.5 Bcma of plateau gas liquefaction capacity, through phased development and with the aim of zero routine gas flaring. A second FLNG, with a capacity of approximately 3.5 Bcma, is currently under construction and will begin production in 2025. The entire volume of LNG produced will be marketed by Eni.

Eni’s presence in Congo

The Italian group has been working in Congo for 55 years and is the one firm lively within the improvement of the nation’s fuel assets. Eni at present provides fuel to the Centrale Electrique du Congo (CEC), which ensures 70% of the nation’s electrical energy manufacturing capability. Eni is dedicated to selling the power transition within the nation by quite a few initiatives, together with the Oyo Center of Excellence for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, not too long ago handed over to the Ministry of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Technological Innovation of the Republic of Congo, which is able to handle it along with Unido (United Nations Industrial Development Organization). Furthermore, the corporate is growing the manufacturing of agricultural uncooked supplies, which don’t compete with the meals provide chain, for the manufacturing of biofuels and has began the challenge for the distribution of improved stoves to native communities which goals to scale back the consumption of woody biomass and emissions related to combustion.
