Is floating LNG coming of age in Africa?
Offshore liquefaction projects seem well-suited for the continent’s upstream
African LNG export capacity is poised to expand in the coming years, thanks to fast-deployment floating LNG (FLNG) technology and Europe’s pressing need for alternative sources of gas. But the developments are still relatively small and remain dwarfed by some of the mega-projects in other regions of the world, which will continue to limit FLNG’s contribution to the global energy mix. Following a 3.4mn t/yr FLNG project in Mozambique due to export before the end of this year, at least a further two new African FLNG schemes remain on pace to start production before the end of 2023.
