The FLNG vessels will have a production capacity of 0.6 million tons per annum (mtpa) and 2.4 mtpa, and will begin production by 2023 and 2025, respectively.

The total production capacity for Congo LNG is 3 mtpa, with the project expected to scale up local energy security through resource supply for power generation needs while fueling energy exports and gross domestic product growth for Congo.

Claudio Descalzi, CEO of Eni, commented that, “Today we celebrate the launch of one of Eni’s main projects, made possible by the collaboration with the Republic of the Congo and destined to significantly contribute to both Italy and Europe’s energy security and industrial competitiveness. This outcome speaks to the importance of long-term collaboration with our African partners at a time when important strategic choices need to be made in regards to future diversification of supply routes and European energy mixes, in the direction of energy accessibility and availability and progressive decarbonization.”
